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.

Abstract [en]

This thesis is a study of the static and dynamic behavior of the magne-tization in spin-flop bi-layers, which consist of two soft ferromagnetic layerscoupled by dipolar forces through a thin nonmagnetic spacer. The focus ofthe work is three fold: collective spin dynamics in the anti-parallel groundstate; resonant switching in the presence of thermal agitation; and static anddynamic behavior of the system in the vortex-pair state, with a particularemphasis on the interlayer core-core interaction.

Two collective spin-flop resonance modes are observed and interpreted asacoustical and optical spin precessions, in which the moments of the two lay-ers oscillate in phase and out of phase, respectively. An analytical macrospinmodel is developed to analyze the experimental results and is found to ac-curately predict the resonance frequencies and their field dependence in thelow-field anti-parallel state and the high-field near saturated state. A micro-magnetic model is developed and successfully explains the static and dynamicbehavior of the system in the entire field range, including the C- and S-typespin-perturbed scissor state of the bi-layer at intermediate fields.

The optical spin-flop resonance at 3-4 GHz is used to demonstrate resonantswitching in the system, in the range of the applied field where quasi-staticswitching is forbidden. An off-axis field of relatively small amplitude canexcite large-angle scissor-like oscillations at the optical resonance frequency,which can result in a full 180-degree reversal, with the two moments switchingpast each other into the mirror anti-parallel state. It is found that the switch-ing probability increases with increasing the duration of the microwave fieldpulse, which shows that the resonant switching process is affected by thermalagitation. Micromagnetic modeling incorporating the effect of temperature isperformed and is in good agreement with the experimental results.

Vortex pair states in spin-flop bi-layers are produced using high amplitudefield pulses near the optical spin resonance in the system. The stable vortex-pair states, 16 in total, of which 4 sub-classes are non-degenerate in energy, areidentified and investigated using static and dynamic applied fields. For AP-chirality vortex-pair states, the system can be studied while the two vortexcores are coupled and decoupled in a single field sweep. It is found thatthe dynamics of the AP-chirality vortex pairs is critically determined by thepolarizations of the two vortex cores and the resulting attractive or repulsivecore-core interaction. The measured spin resonance modes in the system areinterpreted as gyrational, rotational, and vibrational resonances with the helpof the analytical and micromagnetic models developed herein.

A significant effort during this project was made to build two instrumentsfor surface and transport characterization of magnetic nanostructures: a high-current Scanning Tunneling Microscope for studying transport in magneticpoint contacts, and a Current In Plane Tunneling instrument for characteriz-ing unpatterned magnetic tunnel junctions. The design and implementationof the instruments as well as the test data are presented.

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.
