Theory of spintronic phenomena in magnetic tunnel junctions (2)
Mairbek Chshiev
SPINTEC, CEA/CNRS/UJF-Grenoble
le Thursday 25 November 2010 à 14h00
Amphi 7 (FST)
Second part of the lecture series will include theory of non-equilibrium spin currents and the corresponding spin transfer torques in magnetic tunnel junctions with non-collinear moments. Calculations are based on the Keldysh formalism in which the non-equilibrium Green functions are calculated within a tight-binding model and free elctron models. The properties of spin transfer torque and spin currents as a function of applied bias, barrier thickness and distance from the interface in the free layer will be discussed.
