Abstract : Spintronic devices, such as giant magnetoresistance and tunnel magnetoresistance (TMR), provide magnetic sensors for various applications with large markets. This talk will present our recent studies on magnetic sensors using TMR and anomalous Hall effect (AHE). First, after a brief introduction on the previous studies on TMR sensors, our unique strategy to obtain TMR sensors without magnetic hysteresis is described. Using these sensors, we have investigated the low-frequency 1/f noise of the sensor devices. The second topic is AHE. The giant AHE discovered in ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic materials with topological electronic structures is of great fundamental interest. We emphasize that such giant AHE has a great potential for practical application for read head sensor for future HDDs and other novel magnetic sensors.

Biography : Tomoya Nakatani received his Ph.D. degree in Engineering from University of Tsukuba in 2011 for his research on giant magnetoresistance with Heusler alloys. After one year postdoc at NIMS. He joined an HDD company HGST, which is currently Western Digital, San Jose Research Center in California, where he developed read head technology using Heusler alloys. In 2016, he returned to NIMS as a staff researcher. Since then, he has been working on magnetic sensors using GMR, TMR and anomalous Hall effect.
