Research team MRAM memories, within the Devices group


Using a macrospin approach, we carried out a systematic analysis of the role of the voltage controlled magnetic anisotropy on the magnetization dynamics of nanostructures with out-of-plane magnetic anisotropy. Diagrams of the magnetization switching have been computed depending on the material and experiment parameters thus allowing predictive sets of parameters for optimum switching experiments. Voltage […]

NeuSPIN – An ANR project

NeuSPIN stands for Design of a reliable edge neuromorphic system based on spintronics for Green AI. Current computing architectures with separate processing and memory blocks are not ideal for energy-efficient learning and inference processing for AI on the edge concept. For AI edge applications, it is envisioned that classical von Neumann computing will be replaced […]

Perpendicular anisotropy Magnetic Random Access Memory (MRAM) can contribute reduced power consumption in electronic circuits. These spintronic devices also rely on materials like Co, Pt and Ru, having associated supply risk or environmental impact. A sustainability analysis of these devices shows, that the impact of the wafer substrate is much larger than that of the […]

Atomistic spin simulations have been carried out to study the probability of all-optical switching of [Tb/Co] multilayered thin films. Playing with the composition of the sample, the material parameters and the fluence of the laser pulse we have shown the possibility to get single-shot all-optical switching. Since the first experimental observation of all-optical switching phenomena, […]

Magnetic tunnel junctions with perpendicular anisotropy form the basis of the spin-transfer torque magnetic random-access memory (STT-MRAM), which is nonvolatile, fast, dense, and has quasi-infinite write endurance and low power consumption. Here, an alternative design of tunnel junctions comprising FeCoFe|MgO storage layers with greatly enhanced perpendicular magnetic anisotropy (PMA) is proposed, leveraging the interfacial PMA […]

UFO – An ANR project

UFO stands for UltraFast Opto-magneto-spintronics for Futur Nanotechnologies. UltraFast Opto-magneto-spintronics is an emerging field of research that combines the ideas and concepts of magneto-optics and opto-magnetism with spin transport phenomena, supplemented with the possibilities offered by photonics for ultrafast low-dissipative manipulation and transport of information. Both light and spin currents can control magnetic order, though […]

CRYMCO – An ANR project

The goal of project CRYMCO is to optimize MRAM cell concepts for operation in cryogenic temperature environments. The project will explore applications for storage in conventional and quantum information processing. In the first case, MRAM with low energy dissipation for cryogenic environments could result in power savings by operating at low temperature, when the cost/power […]

SpinSpike – An ANR project

SpinSpike stands for Spintronic Spiking Neurons. It is a 42-month-long ANR project (2021/2024). Spintronics has recently shown its promise for neuromorphic computing, but is lacking an essential ingredient of biological neural networks: spiking neurons. In this context, the objective of SpinSpike project is to explore novel approaches of spiking neurons using magnetic tunnel junctions. Building […]
