First-principles calculations of perpendicular magnetic anisotropy for spintronic applications
A combination of density functional theory and non-equilibrium Green’s function methods are used to simulate spin-dependent electronic transport in monatomic Au-nanowires sandwiched between

A perturbative theory of magnetocrystalline anisotropy and orbital moment in itinerant ferromagnets is presented and it is shown that it may produce an an isotropy in the magnetization of the order of 0.1\ensuremath{\mu}B per atom.
230% room temperature magnetoresistance in CoFeB/MgO/CoFeB magnetic tunnel junctions
The magnetoresistance ratio of 230% at room temperature is reported. This was achieved in spin-valve type magnetic tunnel junctions using MgO barrier layer and amorphous CoFeB ferromagnetic

Evidence for strong magnon contribution to the TMR temperature dependence in MgO based tunnel junctions
We have prepared MgO based magnetic tunnel junctions which show up to 143% tunneling magnetoresistance (TMR) ratio at room temperature and 205% at 12 K. This TMR temperature dependence is mainly

Sizable room-temperature magnetoresistance in cobalt based magnetic tunnel junctions with out-of-plane anisotropy
Submicron alumina based magnetic tunnel junctions (MTJs) using electrodes with out-of-plane magnetic anisotropy were prepared and characterized. Both electrodes are industry-compatible Co∕Pt
Magnetic Tunnel Junctions for Spintronic Memories and Beyond
In this paper, recent developments in magnetic tunnel junctions (MTJs) are reported with their potential impacts on integrated circuits. MTJs consist of two metal ferromagnets separated by a thin
Magnetoresistance behavior of a magnetic tunnel junction with perpendicularly magnetized Co∕Pd multilayers
We investigated perpendicularly magnetized magnetic tunnel junctions (pMTJs) using Co∕Pd multilayers and the effects of multilayer structure on the magnetoresistance. We obtained a tunneling
Coercivity in amorphous Tb–Fe alloys
The perpendicular magnetic anisotropy, coercive field, and initial magnetization curves of amorphous TbxFe1−x (x between 0.15 and 0.32) were measured at room temperature for samples prepared under a
Interface magnetic anisotropy in epitaxial superlattices.
The perpendicular interface anisotropy is found to be independent of the epitaxial orientation (0.05 erg/${\mathrm{cm}}^{2}$), and hence to be an intrinsic property of the Co/Pd interface.
