Title: Realization of spin wave switch for data processing

Abstract

In this work, experimental data on a spin wave switch based on spin wave interference is reported. The switch is a three terminal device where spin wave propagation between the source and the drain is modulated by the control spin wave signal. The prototype is a micrometer scale device based on Y 3Fe 2(FeO 4) 3 film. The output characteristics show the oscillation of the output spin wave signal as a function of the phase difference between the source and the drain spin wave signals. The On/Off ratio of the prototype exceeds 20 dB at room temperature. The utilization of phase in addition to amplitude for information encoding offers an innovative route towards multi-state logic circuits. The advantages and shortcomings of spin wave switches are also discussed.

FIG. 1. FIG. 1. : (A) The schematics of the spin wave switch. It is a three terminal device, where the terminals are depicted as Source (S), Drain (D) and Gate (G). The magnons are injected at the Source and detected at the Drain using microstrip antennas (i.e., antennas # 1 andmore » 2). The magnons that control the source-to-drain magnon current are injected directly into the channel from the Gate (i.e., antenna # 3). (B) Experimental setup schematics with a photo of the test device. It consists of a YIG channel with three micro-antennas fabricated on top. The length of the channel is 18 mm, the width of the channel is 2 mm. The thickness of the YIG film is 42 µm.« less
