Enhanced inverse spin-Hall effect in ultrathin ferromagnetic/normal metal bilayers.

Skinner, T. D. and Kurebayashi, H. and Fang, D. and Heiss, D. and Irvine, A. C. and Hindmarch, A. T. and Wang, M. and Rushforth, A. W. and Ferguson, A. J. (2013) 'Enhanced inverse spin-Hall effect in ultrathin ferromagnetic/normal metal bilayers.', Applied physics letters., 102 (7). 072401.


Electrically detected ferromagnetic resonance is measured in microdevices patterned from ultra-thin Co/Pt bilayers. Spin pumping and rectification voltages are observed and distinguished via their angular dependence. The spin-pumping voltage shows an unexpected increase as the cobalt thickness is reduced below 2 nm. This enhancement allows more efficient conversion of spin to charge current.
