In spintronics, the spin dependent transport properties of ferromagnets (Fs) lie at the heart of devices working principles. Conversely, antiferromagnets (AFs) are so far used for their magnetic properties only. However, spin dependent transport with AFs is of high interest: spin absorption lengths ... More »

In order to enhance the tunnel magnetoresistance (TMR) of magnetic tunnel junctions with perpendicular anisotropy the thicknesses of the electrodes on both sides of the MgO barrier have to be optimized. By carefully adjusting the thicknesses of the magnetic layers, taking into account a ... More »
