Ferrimagnetic materials (FiMs) represent a promising direction for the realization of spin-based devices since they can combine the ultrafast dynamics typical of antiferromagnets in an easier way to control the magnetic state typical of ferromagnets. In this work, we micromagnetically analyze the magnetization dynamics of a current-driving transition metal/rare earth ferrimagnet in a spin Hall geometry as a function of the uncompensation parameter of the angular moments of the two sublattices. We show that, for a uniaxial FiM, a self-oscillation is the only possible dynamical state at the angular momentum compensation point. We also find a finite discontinuity near the magnetization compensation point originated from the demagnetizing field, which controls the type of dynamics behind the switching. We finally show the effect of the interfacial Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction on both the switching time and the self-oscillation frequency and amplitude.

Abstract

Ferrimagnetic materials (FiMs) represent a promising direction for the realization of spin-based devices since they can combine the ultrafast dynamics typical of antiferromagnets in an easier way to control the magnetic state typical of ferromagnets. In this work, we micromagnetically analyze the magnetization dynamics of a current-driving transition metal/rare earth ferrimagnet in a spin Hall geometry as a function of the uncompensation parameter of the angular moments of the two sublattices. We show that, for a uniaxial FiM, a self-oscillation is the only possible dynamical state at the angular momentum compensation point. We also find a finite discontinuity near the magnetization compensation point originated from the demagnetizing field, which controls the type of dynamics behind the switching. We finally show the effect of the interfacial Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction on both the switching time and the self-oscillation frequency and amplitude.
