ABSTRACT
We have utilized the antiferromagnetic nature and structural/chemical compatibility of La0.45Sr0.55MnO3 with highly spin polarized La0.67Sr0.33MnO3 to prepare epitaxial exchange bias (EB) couples. A robust EB shift in magnetization hysteresis with associated interfacial exchange energy J≈0.13 erg/cm2 at 10 K along with enhanced coercivity is reported. The EB effect was engineered to bring coercivity contrast between La0.67Sr0.33MnO3 and cobalt films in La0.45Sr0.55MnO3/La0.67Sr0.33MnO3/SrTiO3/Co magnetic tunnel junctions.

    This is a study of the influence of an external magnetic field H and an electric current I on the spin-valve (SV) effect in a point contact between a ferromagnetic thin film (F) and a sharp, nonmagnetic metal tip (N). To explain our observations, we propose a model for a local surface SV in an...

    Ferromagnetic resonance, in 7 to 18 GHz frequency range, is used to investigate a series of rf sputtered Permalloy (Py)/Cu/Co trilayers and Py/Cu/Co/NiO spin valve system. The experimental data, frequency versus applied magnetic field, agree quit well with the theoretical model. The magnetic...

    The stability of the exchange bias field Heb has been studied for Mn80Ir20/Co60Fe20B20 thin films by means of network analyzer ferromagnetic resonance. The results demonstrated that Heb decreases with increasing temperature. The observed variation in the magnitude of Heb and even a reversal in...

    An epitaxial La0.45Sr0.55MnO3 (LSMO) film, which has a paramagnetic-to-ferromagnetic transition at ∼260 K and a partial ferromagnetic-to-antiferromagnetic transition at ∼150 K upon cooling, was synthesized on (001) (La0.18Sr0.82)(Al0.59Ta0.41)O3 with pulsed laser deposition. The x-ray...

    In this paper, we reveal the relation between the giant magnetoresistance (GMR) effect and the phase of interlayer exchange coupling. A factor (α) drawn from the phase shift of interlayer exchange coupling can well account for the GMR of ferromagnetic/nonmagnetic (FM/NM) multilayers. It is...

    We have studied the current induced domain wall depinning from an artificial constriction in Co/Ni multilayer spin valves with perpendicular magnetic anisotropy. We find that the variation in the depinning field under current is strongly dependent on the direction of propagation of the domain...

    We show that the strength and direction of the exchange bias in a spin valve can be changed and recovered by applying a spin-polarized current pulse. In other words, once the exchange bias has been changed by a spin-polarized current pulse with the external magnetic field antiparallel to the...

    We propose and demonstrate that a EuO-induced and top-gated graphene ferromagnetic junction can be simultaneously operated as a spin filter and a spin valve. We attribute such a remarkable result to a coexistence of a half-metal band and a common energy gap for opposite spins in ferromagnetic...

    An important role of the morphology of a superconducting layer in the superconducting spin-valve effect has been established.
