Mechanism of resistive switching in HfOx-based memristors
We conducted an in-depth study of the resistance-switching mechanism in classical HfOx-based devices. Through atomic-level characterisation of the dynamic evolution of conductive filaments, we confirmed that the filament system in this type of device has a quasi-core-shell structure, consisting of a metallic Hf6O core and an insulating HfO2 crystalline shell. constitute. The study pinpointed multiple …

Our paper entitled 'Magnetization dynamics in synthetic ferromagnetic thin films' is published!
Synthetic ferromagnets (SFMs) possess the same layer structure found in the widely studied synthetic antiferromagnets. This consists of two ferromagnetic (FM) layers separated by a non-magnetic (NM) spacer forming the structure FM1/NM/FM2, but SFMs describe the case where the interlayer exchange coupling promotes the parallel alignment of the magnetizations of the FM layers. The frequency and phase of the dynamic response of these structures depends sensitively on the interlayer exchange coupling as well as on the individual layer magnetizations. Through experiments and numerical simulations, we show that the dynamic response of the two ferromagnetic layers has an orthogonal dependence on the difference in layer magnetization and interlayer coupling allowing both parameters to be determined accurately …
An design of skyrmion-based interconnect device
(Abstract) The topological properties of skyrmionic quasiparticles such as magnetic skyrmions and skyrmioniums enable their applications in future low-power, ultradense nanocomputing and neuromorphic systems. We propose here an all-magnetic skyrmionic interconnect, which has so far been the “missing component.” This interconnect will…
Surface roughness helps to stabilise out-of-plane spin textures in an uniformly in-plane magnetised system
We developed a surface roughness model for magnetic systems, by taking into account the space-dependent uniaxial anisotropy and Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction (DMI). The spacial variation is determined by the surface topography of multilayer structure, which is characterised by atomic force microscopy. By using micromagnetic technique, we found that the DMI is required for the stabilisation of meron-like spin textures in an in-plane magnetised [Pt/Co/Ta] trilayer structure. Furthermore, with the presence of surface roughness, much larger textures can be stabilised with lateral dimensions from 0.2 to 2 μm, in agreement with experimental observations. Please find more out in our published paper!

The image is captured during the field-induced magnetic transition of a skyrmion lattice in theory. The colour code indicates the component of magnetisation perpendicular to the film surface. Increasing of the magnetic field forces skyrmion diameter to expand. Then the lattice inversion occurs involving the breaking of domain alls accompained with the emergence of transient antiskyrmions.
