• Current driven magnetization dynamics in ferromagnets and antiferromagnets 

    Wang, Cheng, doctor of physics; 0000-0002-8815-2871
    The development of spintronics and potential applications demands a thorough understanding of various novel phenomena in ferromagnets and antiferromagnets. Magnetotransport measurements, which have been implemented in ...
  • Magnetic switching and magnetodynamics driven by spin transfer torque 

    Seinige, Heidi (2012-02-20)
    In the scope of this thesis spin transfer torque (STT) driven switching and resonances in point contact experiments are investigated. In the first part, the focus is on STT driven switching events in magnetic devices with ...
  • Spin-polarized transport in magnetic nanostructures 

    O'Gorman, Brian Curtin (2011-01-19)
    Two of the principal phenomena observed and exploited in the field of spintronics are giant magnetoresistance (GMR) and spin transfer torque (STT). With GMR, the resistance of a magnetic multilayer is affected by the ...
