We report the experimental observation and micromagnetics simulation of the current-induced switching of the magnetic vortex core in ferromagnetic elliptical disks. We found that the critical current density required for the core switching depends on the relative alignment between the current direction and the elliptical axes of the disk. The micromagnetics simulation results qualitatively reproduce the experimental findings, suggesting that the vortex core displacement induced by the current plays a significant role for the core switching rather than the core velocity.

    The authors show that a current flowing in a direction not perpendicular to the layer planes of an exchange-biased spin valve systematically changes the exchange bias. The direction of the exchange bias can be completely reversed when a large enough current is applied. This effect occurs only...

    One of the puzzles of the recent investigations on the exchange anisotropy in ferromagnetic (FM)/antiferromagnetic (AF) bilayers is the fact that different techniques yield different values for the exchange field (H[sub E]) between the layers. We report an investigation on sputtered NiFe/NiO...
