The application of spin transfer torque switching for the realization of the logic input in a reconfigurable spin logic based on two magnetic tunnel junctions is discussed. Two electrodes with orthogonal fixed magnetization directions are used to replace the magnetic fields generated by a current though leads close to the magnetic tunnel junctions which have been used so far. Initial results of micromagnetic simulations suggest the feasibility of this approach.

    The breakdown distribution of a magnetic tunnel junction (MTJ) with an ultrathin (∼1.2 nm) MgO barrier was studied, and two distinct distributions were identified. The breakdown distribution with high value demonstrates a wide peak-to-peak separation (∼13.4σ) to the critical spin...

    We study the impact of the magnetic field angle on the oscillation frequency of a nanocontact spin torque oscillator (STO) in magnetic fields up to 2.1 T. A model based on a single nonlinear, nonpropagating spin wave mode is found to explain the experimental data. We observe oscillation...

    Sustained stabilization of the n=1 kink mode by plasma rotation at beta approaching twice the stability limit calculated without a wall has been achieved in DIII-D by a combination of error field reduction and sufficient rotation drive. Previous experiments have transiently exceeded the no-wall...

    The characteristics of magnetic domain-wall depinning driven by a spin transfer torque are dramatically different compared to those driven by a conventional magnetic field. By using the recently derived formalism of the spin torque, we describe key features in the dynamics of geometrically...

    We report a time domain study of the frequency transition of spin-torque oscillator (STO) under the magnetic-field pulse in nanosecond range. We fabricated the pillar-structured STO devices consisting of MgO-based tunnel junctions with CoFeB free layers. Single-shot waveforms of the STO were...

    The hydromagnetic flow of an incompressible viscous electrically conducting fluid past a porous plate is investigated when the plate rotates with a uniform angular velocity about an axis normal to the plate and the fluid at infinity rotates with the same angular velocity about a non-coincident...
