Angular dependence of power spectra is measured for tunnel-type spin-transfer oscillators by changing the direction of the external field in the plane. The oscillation frequency shows the red shift with increasing the current in the case that the field directions are away from the hard axis of the free layer. The frequency shift changes from red to blue at a specific direction near the hard axis, where the linewidth is much reduced. These results are explained by taking into account the nonlinearity arising from the in-plane anisotropy as well as that arising from the demagnetizing effect.

    This work focuses on magnetic tunnel junctions with a polycrystalline MgO barrier, prepared by plasma oxidation. Combined with Co50Fe50 ferromagnetic electrodes, a large tunnel magnetoresistance (TMR) of 60% is obtained at room temperature. The TMR effect is comparable to state-of-the-art Al...

    The phase states and elementary excitation spectra of an anisotropic 2D non-Heisenberg ferromagnet are investigated.
