Microscopic theory of spin Hall magnetoresistance

We consider a microscopic theory for the spin Hall magnetoresistance (SMR). We generally formulate a spin conductance at an interface between a normal metal and a magnetic insulator in terms of spin

Theory of spin Hall magnetoresistance (SMR) and related phenomena

The minimal theoretical instruments to calculate the SMR are introduced, i.e. spin diffusion theory and quantum mechanical boundary conditions, which leads to a small set of parameters that can be fitted to experiments.

Interface spin polarization of the Heusler compound Co2MnSi probed by unidirectional spin Hall magnetoresistance.

Many Heusler compounds are predicted to be ferromagnetic half metals in the bulk, which makes them promising compounds for spintronics. However, for devices the transport spin polarization at

Possible contribution of high-energy magnons to unidirectional magnetoresistance in metallic bilayers

We investigate temperature, temporal and magnetic-field dependence of unidirectional magnetoresistance (UMR) in metallic bilayers. The UMR is found to decrease rapidly with reducing temperature and

Quasiclassical theory of the spin–orbit magnetoresistance of three-dimensional Rashba metals

The magnetoresistance of a three-dimensional Rashba metal placed on top of a ferromagnetic insulator is theoretically investigated. In addition to the intrinsic Rashba spin–orbit interaction, we

Theory of spin Hall magnetoresistance

We present a theory of the spin Hall magnetoresistance (SMR) in multilayers made from an insulating ferromagnet F, such as yttrium iron garnet (YIG), and a normal metal N with spin-orbit

Fluctuation theorem in spintronics

Microscopic reversibility is a key in deriving the Onsager relation. It even leads a new exact relationship that would be valid far from equilibrium, called fluctuation theorem (FT). The FT provides

Spin Hall magnetoresistance induced by a nonequilibrium proximity effect.

We report anisotropic magnetoresistance in Pt|Y(3)Fe(5)O(12) bilayers. In spite of Y(3)Fe(5)O(12) being a very good electrical insulator, the resistance of the Pt layer reflects its magnetization

Giant unidirectional spin Hall magnetoresistance in topological insulator – ferromagnetic semiconductor heterostructures

The unidirectional magnetoresistance (UMR) is one of the most complex spin-dependent transport phenomena in ferromagnet/non-magnet bilayers, which involves spin injection and accumulation due to the

Enhanced unidirectional spin Hall magnetoresistance in a Pt/Co system with a Cu interlayer

Spin-dependent scattering at the nonmagnet/ferromagnet interface plays a key role in determining the amplitude of unidirectional spin Hall magnetoresistance (USMR), similar to giant magnetoresistance
