The magnetoresistance (MR) effect between two antiferromagnetic layers separated by a nonmagnetic Cu layer was investigated. The MR ratio of 0.5% was observed in the structure of IrMn(8)/Cu(2.8)/IrMn(0.5)/CoFe(8) (in nanometers), where IrMn stands for Ir22Mn78 and CoFe for Co90Fe10. The study of different structures with and without top IrMn layer indicates that the MR effect originates from the giant magnetoresistance effect between the uncompensated magnetic moments at the IrMn interfaces across nonmagnetic Cu spacer.

    We report a combined experimental and theoretical study on the influence of slanted nanostripe edges on the magnetic domain wall (DW) dynamics in permalloy nanostripes. The DWs show a significantly different behavior in the same sample depending on the magnetization configuration in the DW. We...

    The depinning of domain walls from notches in spin-valve (SV) nanowires induced by nanosecond-long current pulses is probed by giant magnetoresistance. The current densities needed to depin domain walls at low field can be so large that significant Joule heating may be observed for pulses even...

    The on-chip resonant driving of large cone-angle magnetization precession of an individual nanoscale Permalloy element is demonstrated.
