Summary of "Field-Free Spin-Orbit Torque Switching of Perpendicular Magnetization by the Rashba Interface."

Current-induced spin-orbit torques (SOTs) enable efficient electrical manipulation of the magnetization in heterostructures with a perpendicular magnetic anisotropy through the Rashba effect or spin-Hall effect. However, in conventional SOT-based heterostructures, an in-plane bias magnetic field along the current direction is required for the deterministic switching. Here, we report that the field-free SOT switching can be achieved by introducing a wedged oxide interface between a heavy metal and a ferromagnet. The results demonstrate that the field-free SOT switching is determined by a current-induced perpendicular effective field () originating from the interfacial Rashba effect due to the lateral structural symmetry-breaking introduced by the wedged oxide layer. Furthermore, we show that the sign and magnitude of exhibit a significant dependence on the interfacial oxygen content, which can be controlled by the inserted oxide thickness. Our findings provide a deeper insight into the field-free SOT switching by the interfacial Rashba effect.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A technique for detecting short-lived reactive FREE RADICALS in biological systems by providing a nitrone or nitrose compound for an addition reaction to occur which produces an ELECTRON SPIN RESONANCE SPECTROSCOPY-detectable aminoxyl radical. In spin trapping, the compound trapping the radical is called the spin trap and the addition product of the radical is identified as the spin adduct. (Free Rad Res Comm 1990;9(3-6):163)

Molecules which contain an atom or a group of atoms exhibiting an unpaired electron spin that can be detected by electron spin resonance spectroscopy and can be bonded to another molecule. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Chemical and Technical Terms, 4th ed)

A light and spongy (pneumatized) bone that lies between the orbital part of FRONTAL BONE and the anterior of SPHENOID BONE. Ethmoid bone separates the ORBIT from the ETHMOID SINUS. It consists of a horizontal plate, a perpendicular plate, and two lateral labyrinths.

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.

Non-invasive method of demonstrating internal anatomy based on the principle that atomic nuclei in a strong magnetic field absorb pulses of radiofrequency energy and emit them as radiowaves which can be reconstructed into computerized images. The concept includes proton spin tomographic techniques.
