Magnetoresistive detection of perpendicular switching in a magnetic insulator

Magnetoresistive detection of perpendicular switching in a magnetic insulator

15 April 2024
Spintronics offers promising routes for efficient memory, logic, and computing technologies. The central challenge in spintronics is electrically manipulating and detecting magnetic states in devices. The electrical control of magnetization via spin-orbit torques is effective in both conducting and insulating magnetic layers. However, the electrical readout of magnetization in the latter is inherently difficult, limiting their use in practical applications. Here, we show magnetoresistive detection of perpendicular magnetization reversal in an electrically insulating ferrimagnet, terbium iron garnet (TbIG).

L´escola José Echegaray de Martorell presenta el programa MAGNET, en aliança amb l´ICMAB-CSIC, amb l´objectiu de promoure la ciència entre l´alumnat

Tal com ha explicat la directora del centre, Cristina Dalmau, “ens vam adonar que havia arribat el moment de fer un pas endavant en les ciències a l’escola, i això ens va portar a adherir-nos al programa ‘Magnet’. Així, hem treballat juntament amb l’ICMAB el pensament de la metodologia científica, i ara al centre no només experimentem, sinó que també indaguem i ens fem moltes preguntes. A l’Echegaray construïm aprenentatge, i a partir d’ara aquest tindrà uns fonaments molts sòlids basats en la ciència”.
