While the electrical current manipulation of antiferromagnets (AFMs) has been demonstrated, the extent of the studied AFM materials has been limited with few systematic experiments and a poor understanding. We compare the electrical current switching of the exchange-bias field (${H}_{\text{ex}}$) in AFM-${\mathrm{Mn}}_{3}A\mathrm{N}$/ferromagnet-${\mathrm{Co}}_{3}\mathrm{FeN}$ bilayers. An applied pulse current can manipulate ${H}_{\text{ex}}$ with respect to the current density and FM layer…
