Influence of spin-transfer torque on thermally activated ferromagnetic resonance excitations in magnetic tunnel junctions

Abstract : Voltage noise measurements on magnetic tunnel junctions show that thermal fluctuations of the magnetiza-tion are either amplified or quenched by subcritical spin-transfer torque depending on the current direction. We present an analytical model that describes the dependence of thermally activated ferromagnetic resonance on bias current. The evolution of the peak amplitude and linewidth with the applied current is directly related to the longitudinal torque, whereas the shift of the resonance frequency is sensitive to the transverse torque. Both spin torque terms are independently extracted from the measured noise spectra. Our results support the general idea that it is more pertinent to describe spin torque in terms of voltage rather than current in magnetic tunnel junctions.
