Daniel McNally
Associate Editor of Nature Materials

Nature Materials

Nature Materials offers authors high visibility for their work. A team of full-time, professional editors select and commission articles that represent a substantial and arresting fundamental, mechanistic, methodological or practical advance. In this talk I will convey the editor’s perspective on the life of a manuscript after submission to Nature Materials, and provide an overview of the types of content that we publish.

New directions for microwave and THz detectors based on spintronic diodes

Microwave detectors based on the spin-torque diode effect are among the key emerging spintronic devices. By utilizing the spin of electrons in addition to their charge, they have the potential to overcome the theoretical performance limits of their semiconductor (Schottky) counterparts. In the first part of the talk, I will discuss our recent results in the field of microwave detectors based on spin diodes.1 Those devices realized with magnetic tunnel junctions exhibit high-detection sensitivity >200kV/W at room temperature, without any external bias fields, and for low-input power (micro-Watts or lower).2 This sensitivity, achieved taking advantage of the injection locking, is significantly larger than both biased state- of-the-art-Schottky diode detectors and other existing spintronic diodes. Another application of spintronic diodes is the electromagnetic energy harvesting. Here I will show the development of a bias-field-free spin- torque diodes that could be an efficient harvester of broadband ambient RF radiation, capable to efficiently harvest microwave powers of microWatt and below and to power a black phosphorous nanodevice. Finally, the talk will discuss the promising directions of THz detectors based on antiferromagnetic materials including their unique properties such as resonance response and tunability and the remaining challenges to face.

Broadband Ferromagnetic Resonance Spectroscopy: The “Swiss Army Knife” for Understanding Spin-Orbit Phenomena

Modern spin-based technologies rely on multiple, simultaneous phenomena that originate from the spin-orbit interaction in magnetic systems. These include damping, magnetic anisotropy, orbital moments, and spin-orbit torques that are manifested in the spin-Hall and Rashba-Edelstein effects. While cavity based ferromagnetic resonance (FMR) spectroscopy has been used to characterize magnetic materials for many decades, recent advances in broadband and phase-sensitive FMR techniques have allowed further refinement, improved accuracy, and new measurement capability. In fact, broadband FMR techniques can now precisely measure spin-orbit torques at the thin-film level without the requirement of device fabrication [1].
Broadband FMR measurements have also improved our fundamental understanding of magnetic damping. Numerous extrinsic relaxation mechanisms can obscure the measurement of the intrinsic damping of a material. This created a challenge to our understanding of damping because experimental data were not always directly comparable to theory. As a result of the improved ability to quantify all of these relaxation mechanisms, many theoretical models have been refined. In fact, this has recently led to both the prediction [2] and discovery [3] of new materials with ultra- low magnetic damping that will be essential for future technologies based on spintronics, magnonics, spin-logic and high-frequency devices.
I will begin this lecture with a basic introduction to spin-orbit phenomena, followed by an overview of modern broadband FMR techniques and analysis methods. I will then discuss some recent successes in applying broadband FMR to improve our ability to control damping in metals and half-metals, quantify spin-orbit torques and spin- diffusion lengths in multilayers, and determine the interrelationships among damping, orbital moments, and magnetic anisotropy [4], [5]. The impact of these result on specific technologies will also be discussed.
