Current-driven, electrically detected ferromagnetic resonance in electrodeposited spin valves
We investigate the ferromagnetic resonance of Co/Cu/Co trilayers by use of AC-spin-transfer torque excitations. Magnetic structures are grown in a 6-mu m-thick commercial nanoporous polycarbonate membranes by use of electrodeposition in a cobalt/copper single bath. We show that microwave magnetic excitations corresponding to the uniform mode of the two cobalt layers are electrically detected as a change of the DC voltage of the system. (C) 2009 Elsevier B.V.
