We investigate supercurrent-induced magnetization dynamics in a Josephson junction with two misaligned ferromagnetic layers, and demonstrate a variety of effects by solving numerically the Landau-Lifshitz-Gilbert equation. In particular, we demonstrate the possibility to obtain supercurrent-induced magnetization switching for an experimentally feasible set of parameters, and clarify the favorable condition for the realization of magnetization reversal. These results constitute a superconducting…

Resistive State of Superconductor-Ferromagnet-Superconductor Josephson Junctions in the Presence of Moving Domain Walls.
It is shown that in the presence of magnetization dynamics such systems become inherently dissipative and in principle cannot sustain any amount of the superconducting current because of the voltage generated by the magnetization Dynamics.

We study magnetization reversal in a φ 0 Josephson junction with direct coupling between magnetic moment and Josephson current. Our simulations of magnetic moment dynamics show that by applying an
Spin Josephson effect with a single superconductor
A thin ferromagnetic layer on a bulk equal-spin-pairing triplet superconductor is shown to mediate a Josephson coupling between the spin $\uparrow$ and $\downarrow$ condensates of the superconductor.

We theoretically consider a Josephson junction formed by a ferromagnetic spacer with a strong spin-orbit interaction or a magnetic spin valve, i.e., a bilayer with one static and one free layer.
