Title: Writing of a magnetic memory with electric pulses

Abstract

Methods and memory circuits for altering a magnetic direction of a magnetic memory cell using picosecond electric current pulses are disclosed. One method includes directing a first electric current pulse through the magnetic memory cell that includes a ferrimagnetic material layer to heat the ferrimagnetic material layer to toggle a magnetic direction of the ferrimagnetic material layer from a first magnetic direction to a second magnetic direction.
