  • Epitaxial Py/Cu/Co/Cu(001) trilayers were patterned into micron sized disks and imaged using element-specific photoemission electron microscopy. By varying the Cu spacer layer thickness, we study how the coupling between the two magnetic layers influences the formation of magnetic vortex states. We find that while the Py and Co disks form magnetic vortex domains when the interlayer coupling is ferromagnetic, the magnetic vortex domains of the Py and Co disks break into anti-parallel aligned multidomains when the interlayer coupling is antiferromagnetic. We explain this result in terms of magnetic flux closure between the Py and Co layers for the antiferromagnetic couplingmore » case.« less

  • Switching of the perpendicular exchange bias polarity using a magneto-electric (ME) effect of α-Cr{sub 2}O{sub 3} was investigated. From the change in the exchange bias field with the electric field during the ME field cooling, i.e., the simultaneous application of both magnetic and electric fields during the cooling, we determined the threshold electric field to switch the perpendicular exchange bias polarity. It was found that the threshold electric field was inversely proportional to the magnetic field indicating that the EH product was constant. The high EH product was required to switch the exchange bias for the film possessing the highmore » exchange anisotropy energy density, which suggests that the energy gain by the ME effect has to overcome the interfacial exchange coupling energy to reverse the interfacial antiferromagnetic spin.« less
  • Pronounced bipolar resistance switching with a good retention property has been observed in CeO{sub 2}/PrBa{sub 2}Cu{sub 3}O{sub 7−δ}/Pt heterostructure. The low resistance state and high resistance state exhibited distinguished ferromagnetic signals, as compared to the nearly non-magnetic initial state. It is found that the migration of the oxygen vacancies under electric field is mainly responsible for the electric and the magnetic changes. The modified interfacial electronic structure by the oxygen vacancy migration and the trapping/detrapping of the carriers leads to the resistance switching. The exchange interaction of the hydrogen-like orbitals formed around the singly occupied oxygen vacancies in CeO{sub 2}more » is accounting for the emerged and modulated ferromagnetic signals. Temperature dependence of resistance in the low resistance state follows a variable range hopping law, further confirming that the amount of oxygen vacancies in the CeO{sub 2} layer directly affects the hydrogen-like orbital radius, which determines the strength of the ferromagnetic coupling.« less
  • The complex NMR study of the magnetic structure of LiCu{sub 2}O{sub 2} multiferroic has been performed. It has been shown that the spin spirals in LiCu{sub 2}O{sub 2} are beyond the ab, bc, and ac crystallographic planes. The external magnetic field applied along the c axis of the crystal does not change the spatial orientation of spirals in Cu{sup 2+} chains. A magnetic field of H{sub 0} = 94 kOe applied along the a and b axes rotates the planes of spin spirals in chains, tending to orient the normal n of spirals along the external magnetic field. The rotationmore » angle of the planes of the magnetic moments are maximal at H{sub 0} Double-Vertical-Line b.« less
