In this work we examine the transition between positive and negative organic magnetoresistance in poly[2-methoxy-5-(3′, 7′-dimethyloctyloxy)-p-phenylenevinylene] in order to understand how different regimes of charge transport affect the organic magnetoresistance effect. To characterize the charge transport in these devices we measured the current, low frequency differential capacitance, and electroluminescence efficiency as a function of voltage. These measurements show that the sign change of the magnetoresistance corresponds with a change from a unipolar diffusive transport below the built in voltage (Vbi) to a regime of bipolar drift transport above Vbi.

    Breakdown characteristics of the magnetic tunnel junctions (MTJ) with different junction areas of S = 200 μm[SUP2] and S = 0.5 μm[SUP2] are investigated under constant voltage stress. The breakdown process is found to be quite different for the two junction areas. For the large junctions...
