Abstract The interfacial structures between magnetic/non-magnetic films play a crucial rule in spintronic devices. In particular, Tunneling magneto-resistance (TMR) is extremely sensitive to the band structure of ferromagnet/insulator interfaces.  In this sense, a number of experimental and ... More »

Accurate experimental measurements have confirmed theoretical predictions made at Spintec concerning spin transfer torque in magnetic tunnel junctions. This effect lies at the heart of future spintronic applications.   The “spin transfer torque” concept is essential for ... More »
Spintronics created magnetic memories and radio-frequency oscillators based on similar stacks of magnetic and non-magnetic layers. In an oscillator, a continuous current of spin-polarized electrons flowing across the stack produces a steady magnetization precession of one layer, at the origin of ... More »

With original measurements on high quality samples, Spintec laboratory, in collaboration with Leti and Hitachi, has just revealed one of the reasons why the performance of radio frequency spin oscillators still remains limited. Our studies show that the quality of the oscillators is inherently very ... More »

In Hard disk drives and magnetic memories, information is stored in a magnetic domain, associating magnetization direction to logic 1 and 0, up or down direction, which is written using a magnetic field. To locally manipulate the border of these domains, the domain wall, with an electrical current ... More »
