We suggest the existence of gyroscopic effects in ring fluxon oscillators, which, due to the extremely narrow oscillation linewidths, could therefore be used as sensitive rotation rate sensors. For the sake of comparison we also improve on previous analytical determinations of the thermal background intensity for oscillating Josephson lines.

    We study the behavior of the linewidth of a nanocontact based spin torque oscillator (STO) under application of a radio frequency (100 MHz) modulating current. We achieve a significant (up to 85%) reduction in the STO linewidth when it is modulated across a region of high nonlinearity. The...

    The current controlled modulation of nanocontact based spin torque oscillator (STO) pairs is studied in both the synchronized and nonsynchronized states. The synchronized state shows a well behaved modulation and demonstrates robust mutual locking even under strong modulation. The power...
