The rich physics of thin film antiferromagnets can be harnessed for prospective spintronic devices given that all-electric assessment of the tiny uncompensated magnetic moment is achieved. On the example of magnetoelectric antiferromagnetic Cr2O3, we prove that spinning-current anomalous Hall magnetometry serves as an all-electric method to probe the field-invariant uncompensated magnetization of antiferromagnets. We obtain direct access to the surface magnetization of magnetoelectric…

Manipulation of Antiferromagnetic Spin Using Tunable Parasitic Magnetization in Magnetoelectric Antiferromagnet
Antiferromagnets and ferrimagnets with a low net magnetic moment are key components for future spintronic devices because they enable high‐integration and high‐speed (on the order of THz) operations.
Dynamics of magnetoelectric reversal of an antiferromagnetic domain
When electric and magnetic fields are applied together on a magnetoelectric antiferromagnet, the domain state is subject to reversal. Although the initial and final conditions are saturated
The complete micromagnetic characterization of asymmetrically sandwiched ferromagnetic films
The magnetic properties of ferromagnetic thin films down to the nanoscale are ruled by the exchange stiffness, anisotropies and the effects of magnetic fields. As surfaces break inversion symmetry,
Large Spin Hall Magnetoresistance in Antiferromagnetic α−Fe2O3/Pt Heterostructures
We investigate the spin Hall magnetoresistance (SMR) at room temperature in thin film heterostructures of antiferromagnetic, insulating, (0001)-oriented alpha-Fe2O3 (hematite) and Pt. We measure
Nanomagnetism of Magnetoelectric Granular Thin-Film Antiferromagnets
TLDR
This work quantitatively image the evolution of individual nanoscale antiferromagnetic domains in 200 nm thin films of Cr2O3 in real space and across the paramagnet-to-antiferromagnet phase transition, finding an average domain size of 230 nm, several times larger than the average grain size in the film.
Purely antiferromagnetic magnetoelectric random access memory
TLDR
A purely antiferromagnetic magnetoelectric random access memory (AF-MERAM) that offers a remarkable 50-fold reduction of the writing threshold compared with ferromagnet-based counterparts, is robust against magnetic disturbances and exhibits no ferromagnetic hysteresis losses is proposed.
Large anomalous Hall effect in L12-ordered antiferromagnetic Mn3Ir thin films
Antiferromagnets having negligible net magnetization but a topologically nontrivial spin structure are a good testbed for investigating the intrinsic anomalous Hall effect (AHE). In this Letter, we
Towards a Strong Spin–Orbit Coupling Magnetoelectric Transistor
Here, we outline magnetoelectric (ME) device concepts based on the voltage control of the interface magnetism of an ME antiferromagnet gate dielectric formed on a very thin semiconductor channel with
Magnetoelectric Induced Switching of Perpendicular Exchange Bias Using 30-nm-Thick Cr2O3 Thin Film
Magnetoelectric (ME) effect is a result of the interplay between magnetism and electric field and now, it is regarded as a principle that can be applied to the technique of controlling the
