Effect of Temperature on Magnetic Solitons Induced by Spin-Transfer Torque

Sergi Lendínez, Jinting Hang, Saül Vélez, Joan Manel Hernández, Dirk Backes, Andrew D. Kent, and Ferran Macià. Phys. Rev. Applied 7, 054027. DOI:https://doi.org/10.1103/PhysRevApplied.7.054027

The quest to harness dynamic collective excitations, such as spin waves or dissipative solitons, as a basis for spintronics continues. This study shows that thermal fluctuations have a significant effect on the dynamics of magnetic excitations induced by spin-transfer torque (STT), and provide a pathway to controlling spin-wave condensation, propagation, stochasticity, and stability. As it turns out, droplet solitons nucleate for lower current densities at lower temperatures, in contrast to typical STT-induced switching between static magnetic states.

    Using ALBA’s synchrotron light, researchers have been able to visualise deformation (sound) waves in crystals and measured the effect on nanomagnetic elements. The study, published today in Nature Communications, uses the accelerators’ time structure to record time resolved images with a resolution of 80 picoseconds. The methodology offers a new approach for analysing dynamic strains in other research fields: nanoparticles, chemical reactions, crystallography, etc.
