  • We study the magnetoresistance of yttrium iron garnet/Pt heterostructures in which the Pt layer was grown via atomic layer deposition (ALD). Magnetotransport experiments in three orthogonal rotation planes reveal the hallmark features of spin Hall magnetoresistance. We estimate the spin transport parameters by comparing the magnitude of the magnetoresistance in samples with different Pt thicknesses. We compare the spin Hall angle and the spin diffusion length of the ALD Pt layers to the values… CONTINUE READING
