Spin Torque Induced Magnetic Vortex Dynamics in Layered Nanopillars
Abstract:The main parameters of the spin polarized current induced magnetic vortex dynamics in tri-layer nanopillars of ferromagnet/non-magnetic spacer/ferromagnet, such as critical currents of the vortex steady oscillations and the oscillation frequencies, are calculated. To describe the vortex excitations by the spin polarized current a generalized Thiele approach to motion of the vortex core as a collective coordinate was used. All the calculation results are represented via the nanopillar layer sizes, saturation magnetization, and the Gilbert damping. The magnetization dynamics in the layers can be detected using giant magnetoresistance effect.
