This study discusses the influence of Ta buffer layer thickness on magnetic and structural parameters of a Ta-Co40Fe40B20-MgO-Ta magnetic tunnel junction (MTJ). The MTJ is deposited on thermally oxidized Si(001) substrates and annealed at 330°C for 20 min. Atomic force microscopy and X-ray diffraction are used to investigate the microstructure and surface… CONTINUE READING
