Current-Induced Magnetization Control in Insulating Ferrimagnetic Garnets
29 June 2021
The research into insulating ferrimagnetic garnets has gained enormous momentum in the past decade. This is partly due to the improvement in the techniques to grow high-quality ultrathin films with desirable properties and the advances in understanding the spin transport within the ferrimagnetic garnets and through their interfaces with conducting materials. In recent years, we have seen remarkable progress in controlling the magnetization state of ferrimagnetic garnets by electrical means in suitable heterostructures and device architectures.
These advances have readily placed ferrimagnetic garnets in a favorable position for the future development of insulating spintronic concepts. The purpose of this article is to review recent experimental results of the current-induced magnetization control and associated phenomena in ferrimagnetic garnets, as well as to discuss future directions in this rapidly evolving area of spintronics.

  • Giant Tuning of Electronic and Thermoelectric Properties by Epitaxial Strain in p-Type Sr-Doped LaCrO3 Transparent Thin Films

    The impact of epitaxial strain on the structural, electronic, and thermoelectric properties of p-type transparent Sr-doped LaCrO3 thin films has been investigated. For this purpose, high-quality fully strained La0.75Sr0.25CrO3 (LSCO) epitaxial thin films were grown by molecular beam epitaxy on three different (pseudo)cubic (001)-oriented perovskite oxide substrates: LaAlO3, (LaAlO3)0.3(Sr2AlTaO6)0.7, and DyScO3. The lattice mismatch between the LSCO films and the substrates induces in-plane strain ranging from −2.06% (compressive) to +1.75% (tensile).
  • Magnetocapacitance effect and magnetoelectric coupling in type-II multiferroic HoFeWO 6

    We have investigated the multiferroicity and magnetoelectric (ME) coupling in HoFeWO6. With a noncentrosymmetric polar structure (space group Pna21) at room temperature, this compound shows an onset of electric polarization with an antiferromagnetic ordering at the Néel temperature (TN) of 17.8 K. The magnetic properties of the polycrystalline samples were studied by DC and AC magnetization and heat capacity measurements.
  • Insights into the atomic structure of the interface of ferroelectric Hf0.5Zr0.5O2 grown epitaxially on La2/3Sr1/3MnO3

    Epitaxial growth of Hf0.5Zr0.5O2 (HZO) thin films allows for the stabilization of the metastable orthorhombic phase with robust ferroelectric properties. So far, the ferroelectric phase is most commonly stabilized on perovskite substrates upon insertion of a buffer layer of La2/3Sr1/3MnO3 (LSMO).
  • Symmetry mode analysis of distorted polar/nonpolar structures in A-site ordered SmBaMn2O6 perovskite

    We present a comprehensive structural study of the charge-orbital ordering and magnetic phase transitions observed in the A-site ordered SmBaMn2O6 perovskite combining synchrotron radiation x-ray powder diffraction and symmetry-adapted modes analysis. InSmBaMn2O6, successive phase transitions in charge, spin, and lattice degrees of freedom take place with decreasing temperature at TCO1≈380K,TCO2≈190K, and TN≈250K.
  • Thickness effect on ferroelectric properties of La-doped HfO2 epitaxial films down to 4.5 nm

    Information
    10 August 2021 321 hit(s) Oxides
    Stabilization of the orthorhombic phase of HfO2 with La allows very high polarization and endurance. However, these properties have not been confirmed yet in films having thickness of less than 10 nm. We have grown (111)-oriented La (2 at%) doped epitaxial HfO2 films on SrTiO3(001) and Si(001) substrates, and we report on the thickness dependence of their ferroelectric properties.
