Exchange bias in ferromagnetic/antiferromagnetic systems can be explained in terms of various interfacial phenomena. Among these, spin glass frustration can affect the magnetic properties in exchange bias systems. Here we have studied a NiMn/CoFeB exchange bias system in which spin glass frustration seems to play a crucial role. In order to account for the effect of spin glass frustration on magnetic properties, we have investigated the temperature and cooling field dependence of exchange bias… Expand

Improvement and stabilization of exchange bias in ferromagnet/antiferromagnet/ferromagnet trilayers.
An unbiased Monte-Carlo method is used and a phenomenological model reveals that antiferromagnetic spins change from a fluctuated state to a blocked state due to the existence of seed ferromagnet, and thus an artificial pinning layer is conceived to establish and regulate exchange bias. Expand
