- ItemMagneto-thermal transport indicating enhanced Nernst response in FeCo/IrMn exchange coupled stacks(Melville, NY : American Inst. of Physics, 2022) Martini, Mickey; Reichlova, Helena; Lee, Yejin; Dusíková, Dominika; Zemen, Jan; Nielsch, Kornelius; Thomas, AndyWe present an analysis of magneto-thermal transport data in IrMn/FeCo bilayers based on the Mott relation and report an enhancement of the Nernst response in the vicinity of the blocking temperature. We measure all four transport coefficients of the longitudinal resistivity, anomalous Hall resistivity, Seebeck effect, and anomalous Nernst effect, and we show a deviation arising around the blocking temperature between the measured Nernst coefficient and the one calculated using the Mott rule. We attribute this discrepancy to spin fluctuations at the antiferromagnet/ferromagnet interface near the blocking temperature. The latter is estimated by magnetometry and magneto-transport measurements.
- ItemSignatures of a Charge Density Wave Phase and the Chiral Anomaly in the Fermionic Material Cobalt Monosilicide CoSi(Weinheim : Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KG, 2020) Schnatmann, Lauritz; Geishendorf, Kevin; Lammel, Michaela; Damm, Christine; Novikov, Sergey; Thomas, Andy; Burkov, Alexander; Reith, Heiko; Nielsch, Kornelius; Schierning, GabiMaterials with topological electronic states have emerged as one of the most exciting discoveries of condensed quantum matter, hosting quasiparticles with extremely low effective mass and high mobility. Weyl materials contain such topological states in the bulk and additionally have a non-trivial chiral charge. However, despite known quantum effects caused by these chiral states, the interplay between chiral states, and a charge density wave phase, an ordering of the electrons to a correlated phase is not experimentally explored. Indications for the formation of a charge density wave phase in the Weyl material cobalt monosilicide CoSi are observed. Furthermore, the typical signatures of the charge density wave phase together with typical signatures of Weyl fermions in magnetic field dependent electrical transport characterization are investigated. The charge density wave and the chiral contribution to the electrical magneto-transport are separated as well as a suppression of the charge density wave phase is observed in magnetic fields. © 2019 The Authors.

- ItemTemperature gradient-induced magnetization reversal of single ferromagnetic nanowires(Bristol : IOP Publ., 2017-11-17) Michel, Ann-Kathrin; Niemann, Anna Corinna; Boehnert, Tim; Martens, Stephan; Moreno, Josep M. Montero; Goerlitz, Detlef; Zierold, Robert; Reith, Heiko; Vega, Victor; Prida, Victor M.; Thomas, Andy; Gooth, Johannes; Nielsch, KorneliusIn this study, we investigate the temperature- and temperature gradient-dependent magnetization reversal process of individual, single-domain Co39Ni61 and Fe15Ni85 ferromagnetic nanowires via the magneto-optical Kerr effect and magnetoresistance measurements. While the coercive fields (HC) and therefore the magnetic switching fields (HSW) generally decrease under isothermal conditions at elevated base temperatures (Tbase), temperature gradients (ΔT) along the nanowires lead to an increased switching field of up to 15% for ΔT = 300 K in Co39Ni61 nanowires. This enhancement is attributed to a stress-induced, magneto-elastic anisotropy term due to an applied temperature gradient along the nanowire that counteracts the thermally assisted magnetization reversal process. Our results demonstrate that a careful distinction between locally elevated temperatures and temperature gradients has to be made in future heat-assisted magnetic recording devices.
