Summary of "Electric field driven multi-state magnetization switching in triangular nanomagnets on piezoelectric substrate."

Electric field control of magnetic state switching mediated by magneto-elastic coupling in multiferroic heterostructures consisting of shape anisotropic magnetostrictive nanomagnets elastically coupled with a piezoelectric substrate has a promising potential for next generation magneto-elastic memory and logic devices. In this work, by using micromagnetic simulation, we showed that localized strain-induced magnetic anisotropy caused by the electric field-induced piezostrain combined with strong multifold shape anisotropy effect can be used for achieving a multistate switching of magnetization in a triangular soft magnetic nano-island on a piezoelectric substrate. A piezostrain-induced uniaxial magnetic anisotropy pulse applied in specific directions switches the magnetization within the triangular nanomagnet by an angle of 60<sup>0</sup> from the initial state. The relation between critical magnitude of the strain pulse for the switching of the magnetization states and geometric parameters (thickness and lateral size) within the triangular nanomagnets has been worked out. Complete cycles of clockwise as well as counter-clockwise switching of the magnetization states of the triangular nanomagnet have been achieved by a series of sequential switching with different directions of applied strain-induced magnetic anisotropy. This local gating scheme-based multistate switching can be used for electric field-induced ultra-fast, deterministic and reversible magnetization switching which are the key challenges in designing of the magnetoelastic and/or magnetoelectric memory and logic devices.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Devices for accelerating charged particles in a spiral path by a constant-frequency alternating electric field. This electric field is synchronized with the movement of the particles in a constant magnetic field.

Electrophoresis in which the direction of the electric field is changed periodically. This technique is similar to other electrophoretic methods normally used to separate double-stranded DNA molecules ranging in size up to tens of thousands of base-pairs. However, by alternating the electric field direction one is able to separate DNA molecules up to several million base-pairs in length.

Injuries caused by electric currents. The concept excludes electric burns (BURNS, ELECTRIC), but includes accidental electrocution and electric shock.

Fibrocartilage that makes up the triangular fibrocartilage complex which is found in the WRIST JOINT.

Gene rearrangement of the B-lymphocyte which results in a substitution in the type of heavy-chain constant region that is expressed. This allows the effector response to change while the antigen binding specificity (variable region) remains the same. The majority of class switching occurs by a DNA recombination event but it also can take place at the level of RNA processing.
