Spin transfer torque magnetization reversal in a hard/soft composite structures

Abstract

Current induced magnetization manipulation in a spin valve structure where the free layer is a magnetic hard/soft composite structure is studied using micromagnetic simulations. In this structure where the hard layers has strong perpendicular magnetic anisotropy, a domain wall can be nucleated in the soft layer due to the spin transfer torque effect. Depending on the magnetic properties of the layers and the current intensity the domain wall can induce the free layer reversal or be pinned by the hard layer. For these non-uniform magnetic configurations both bulk and interface spin transfer torques need to be considered. The potential reduction of the critical current observed in this geometry is of potential technological interest.
