  1. 1. Theory of X-ray Absorption Spectra and Spin Transfer Torque

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Ola Wessely; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physics; First principles calculations; X-ray absorption spectroscopy; Carbon nanotubes; Helical spin density waves; Hydrogen storage; Spin transfer torque; Fysik; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik;

    Abstract : The subjects of the thesis are theoretical first principles calculations of X-ray absorption (XA) spectra and current induced spin transfer torque. XA spectra calculated from atomic multiplet theory and from band structure calculations, based on density functional theory for La0.7Sr0.3MnO3 have been compared to experiment. READ MORE

  2. 2. Spin transfer torques and spin dynamics in point contacts and spin-flop tunnel junctions

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Alexander Konovalenko; KTH.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; spin dynamics; spin transfer torques; point contacts; magnetization dynamics; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik;

    Abstract : The first part of this thesis is an experimental study of the spin-dependent transport in magnetic point contacts. Nano-contacts are produced micromechanically, by bringing a sharpened non-magnetic (N) tip into contact with a ferromagnetic (F) film. READ MORE

  3. 3. Fabrication and Characterization of Nanocontact Spin-Torque Oscillators

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Sohrab Redjai Sani; KTH.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Spin-torque oscillators; phase locking; spin wave; giant magnetoresistance; spin transfer torque; thin films.;

    Abstract : The manufacturing of nanocontact-based spin-torque oscillators (NC-STOs)has opened the door for spintronic devices to play a part as active microwaveelements. The NC-STO has the capability of converting a direct current intoa microwave signal, and vice versa, by utilizing the spin transfer torque (STT)in ferromagnetic multilayer systems. READ MORE
