Within spin-based electronics (spintronics), a novel method promising ultrafast and secure magnetic reminiscence is predicated on antiferromagnets as lively components. These supplies with out macroscopic magnetization however with a staggered orientation of their microscopic magnetic moments show intrinsic dynamics within the Terahertz (THz) vary and are strong towards magnetic fields.
However, technologically related read-out in spintronics requires important magnetoresistance results, i.e., resistance modifications bigger than 20 % ought to be related to a reorientation of the staggered magnetization. This represents a serious problem in antiferromagnetic spintronics.
New method permits the well-established read-out strategies of ferromagnets
As printed within the on-line science journal Nature Communications, scientists of the Institute of Physics of Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU), inside an international collaboration, at the moment are in a position to reveal a robust change coupling of very skinny ferromagnetic layers to the prototypical antiferromagnetic spintronics compound of manganese and gold (Mn2Au). This permits us to learn from the well-established read-out strategies of ferromagnets, whereas the important benefits of antiferromagnetic spintronics are solely barely diminished.
