Spin switching in antiferromagnets using Néel-order spin-orbit torques (2018)
Journal Article
Wadley, P., & Edmonds, K. (2018). Spin switching in antiferromagnets using Néel-order spin-orbit torques. Chinese Physics B, 27(10), doi:10.1088/1674-1056/27/10/107201

Antiferromagnets offer considerable potential for electronic device applications. This article reviews recent demonstrations of spin manipulation in antiferromagnetic devices using applied electrical currents. Due to spin-orbit coupling in environmen... Read More

Adjustable current-induced magnetization switching utilizing interlayer exchange coupling (2018)
Journal Article
Sheng, Y., Edmonds, K., Ma, X., Zheng, H., & Wang, K. (2018). Adjustable current-induced magnetization switching utilizing interlayer exchange coupling. Advanced Electronic Materials, 4(9), doi:10.1002/aelm.201800224. ISSN 2199-160X

Electrical current-induced deterministic magnetization switching in a magnetic multilayer structure without external magnetic field is realized by utilizing interlayer exchange coupling. Two ferromagnetic Co layers, with in-plane and out-of-plane ani... Read More

Three-dimensional Heisenberg critical behavior in the highly disordered dilute ferromagnetic semiconductor (Ga,Mn)As (2016)
Journal Article
Wang, M., Marshall, R. A., Edmonds, K. W., Rushforth, A., Campion, R., & Gallagher, B. (2016). Three-dimensional Heisenberg critical behavior in the highly disordered dilute ferromagnetic semiconductor (Ga,Mn)As. Physical Review B, 93, doi:10.1103/PhysRevB.93.184417. ISSN 2469-9950

We present detailed studies of critical behavior in the strongly site-disordered dilute ferromagnetic semiconductor (Ga,Mn)As. (Ga,Mn)As has a low saturation magnetization and relatively strong magnetocrystalline anisotropy. This combination of prop... Read More
