Current and shot noise measurements in a carbon nanotube-based spin diode
(American Institute of Physics, 2009-04-01)
Low-temperature measurements of asymmetric carbon nanotube (CNT) quantum dots are reported. The CNTs are end-contacted with one ferromagnetic and one normal-metal electrode. The measurements show a spin-dependent rectification ...
Dynamics of domain walls in magnetic nanostrips
(American Physical Society, 2008-03-28)
We express the dynamics of domain walls in ferromagnetic nanowires in terms of collective coordinates, generalizing Thiele[psila]s steady-state results. For weak external perturbations the dynamics is dominated by a few ...
Fermionic spin excitations in two- and three-dimensional antiferromagnets
(American Physical Society, 2009-10-30)
Spin excitations in an ordered Heisenberg magnet are magnons-bosons with spin 1. That may change when frustration and quantum fluctuations suppress the order and restore the spin-rotation symmetry. We show that spin ...
Ising phases of Heisenberg ladders in a magnetic field
(American Physical Society, 2007-09-14)
We show that Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya (DM) interactions can substantially modify the phase diagram of spin-1/2 Heisenberg ladders in a magnetic field provided they compete with exchange. For nonfrustrated ladders, they induce ...
Stripes in thin ferromagnetic films with out-of-plane anisotropy
(American Physical Society, 2007-05-01)
We examine the T=0 phase diagram of a thin ferromagnetic film with a strong out-of-plane anisotropy (e.g., Co/Pt multilayers) in the vicinity of the reorientation phase transition. The phase diagram in the anisotropy-applied-field ...
Broken parity and a chiral ground state in the frustrated magnet CdCr2O4
(American Physical Society, 2006-08-01)
We present a model describing the lattice distortion and incommensurate magnetic order in the spinel CdCr2O4, a good realization of the Heisenberg 'pyrochlore' antiferromagnet. The magnetic frustration is relieved through ...
