In Ta/MgO/IrMn tunneling junctions, containing no ferromagnetic elements, distinct metastable resistance states has been settled, meaning a magnetic memory with 0 net magnetic moment. These metastable states are therefore insensitive to external magnetic fields (tested up to 2 T), thus constituting an absolutely shielded memory.
