Abstract [en]

We study the effects of pinning on the quasi-static behavior of stacked, strongly coupled spin-vortex pairs in magnetic multilayered nanopillars, with vertical vortex separation small compared with the vortex-core size. The small separation causes the core-core interaction to be the dominant energy contribution for small applied fields and excitations, which results in highly non-linear dynamics. The properties of such a vortex pair are expected to only be dependent on the relative vortex core polarizations and relative chiralities, so that the individual configurations should be degenerated. We show how pinning can lift this degeneracy, which can be used to distinguish the individual chirality configurations.

Abstract [en]

Applications of magnetic memory devices greatly benefit from ultra-fast, low-power switching. In this paper, we propose a method for how this can be achieved efficiently in a nano-sized synthetic antiferromagnet by using perpendicular-to-the-plane picosecondrange magnetic-field pulses. Our detailed micromagnetic simulations, supported by analytical results, yield the parameter space where inertial switching and relaxation-free switching can be achieved in the system. We furthermore discuss the advantages of dynamic switching in synthetic antiferromagnets and, specifically, their relatively low-power switching as compared with that in single ferromagnetic particles. Finally, we show how the excitation of spin waves in the system can be used to significantly reduce the post-switching spin oscillations for practical device geometries.

Abstract [en]

Synthetic antiferromagnets (SAFs) consist of two thin ferromagnetic particles separated by a thin nonmagnetic spacer. The magnetic moments of the two particles couple antiparallel via dipolar interactions, with the interlayer exchange interaction suppressed by a suitable choice of the spacer material. The SAF system studied in this thesis contains thin elliptical-in-the-plane permalloy particles magnetized uniformly and mutually antiparallel in the ground state. A SAF can also exhibit long-lived metastable nonuniform magnetization states, such as spin-vortex pairs. The thesis explores hysteresis and spin dynamics in: (i) uniformly magnetized SAFs and (ii) SAFs in the vortex-pair state.

The uniformly magnetized antiparallel ground state of a symmetrical SAF, having identical ferromagnetic particles, is double  degenerate. The resonance modes are in-phase (acoustical) and out-of-phase (optical) oscillations of the magnetic moments. Asymmetry between the two magnetic layers is shown to lift the degeneracy of the antiparallel ground state, which in the static regime results in unequal stability of the two states. In the dynamic regime, the asymmetries are shown to result in a splitting of the resonance frequency of the new non-degenerate ground states. The resulting resonant-mode splitting can be used to selectively switch between the antiparallel ground states by resonant microwave or thermal activation of the system.

The static and dynamic properties of the vortex pairs in SAFs were found to be strongly dependent on the relative orientation of the vortex chiralities and vortex-core polarizations in the two ferromagnetic particles of the SAF. For parallel core polarizations, a strong monopole-like core-core interaction is found to dominate the magnetic properties of the system, increasing the characteristic resonance frequency by an order of magnitude.  Analytical theory and numerical micromagnetic simulations are used to explain the measured responses.

Abstract [en]

Stacked spin-vortex pairs in magnetic multilayered nanopillars, with vertical separation between the vortices small compared to the vortex core size and pure magnetostatic coupling, exhibit spin dynamics absent in individual vortices. This dynamics is nonlinear and is due to the strong direct core-core coupling in the system, dominating energetically for small-signal excitation. We observe and explain the appearance of spin resonance modes, forbidden within linear dynamics, and discuss how they depend on the magnetic and morphological asymmetries in the samples.

Abstract [en]

We investigate the dynamics of spin vortex pairs in magnetic multilayer particles, with the vortices closely spaced vertically and therefore with strong core-core coupling. We focus on the spin-dynamic behavior of the system beyond the linear small-signal regime, and on the state with antiparallel vortex chiralities and parallel cores, in which the vortex cores are strongly dipole coupled. The data show a clear transition from the dominant single rotational resonance at 2-3 GHz for small excitation field amplitudes to a dominant gyrational resonance at high excitation fields. The concomitant changes in the microwave spectra, seen as satellite resonances near the rotational peak as well as a pronounced low-frequency resonance, are interpreted as arising from the nonlinearities of the main rotational mode, which also mediate microwave power transfer from the high- to the low-frequency mode.

Abstract [en]

Geometric or magnetic asymmetries in synthetic antiferromagnetic particles give rise to ferrimagnetic-like magnetization behavior, both quasi-static and dynamic. Such asymmetries in synthetic ferrimagnets can originate from a thickness imbalance or a fringing field from the reference layer in a nanopillar stack. In this paper, we theoretically describe the effects of the corresponding magnetic asymmetry contribution on the structure's static and spin-dynamic behavior. The developed model is then used to experimentally determine the asymmetry parameters of typical nanoscale spin-flop junctions, as well as successfully describe their microwave resonant properties, such as the frequency splitting and the field dependence of the optical spin-resonance spectra.

Abstract [en]

Interlayer exchange coupling in strong/weak/strong ferromagnetic multilayers is investigated as a function of external magnetic field and temperature, with the focus on the magnetization switching near the Curie transition in the spacer composed of a diluted ferromagnet of concentration paramagnetic in the bulk. The effect of an externally applied reversing magnetic field on the width of the thermomagnetic transition is studied experimentally and explained theoretically as a result of the interplay between the proximity-induced exchange and the Zeeman effects in the system. Of high potential for applications should be the ability to switch one of the ferromagnetic outer layers using magnetic field, temperature, or a combination of the two.

Abstract [en]

We study spin dynamics in synthetic ferrimagnets, in which two dipole-coupled magnetic nanoparticles are different in thickness or biased asymmetrically with an external field. We observe a splitting of the optical spin-resonance for the two antiparallel ground states of the system and demonstrate how this splitting can be used to deterministically select a particular ground state. The demonstrated resonant switching is a fast and low-field way of controlling the magnetic state of nanodevices currently used in such large scale applications as magnetic random access memory.

Abstract [en]

We investigate nanopillars in which two thin ferromagnetic particles are separated by a nanometer thin nonmagnetic spacer and can be set into stable spin vortex-pair configurations. We find that the previously unexplored limit of strong vortex core-core coupling can dominate the spin dynamics in the system. We observe experimentally and explain analytically and numerically how the 0.2 GHz gyrational resonance modes of the individual vortices are transformed into a 2 GHz collective rotational resonance mode in the configurations where the two cores form a bound pair.
