Advanced techniques for all-electrical spectroscopy on spin caloric phenomena
Spin-dependent properties of nanomagnets and magnetic/nonmagnetic hybrid systems have gained a renewed interest after the discovery of spin caloric transport phenomena. To explore such properties in detail, advanced techniques need to be developed. In this paper we report novel approaches to study both the magneto–thermal and magneto–mechanical characteristics of hybrid systems. These techniques involve in particular broadband spectroscopy of spin dynamics and surface acoustic waves in the GHz frequency regime. By these means we investigate ferromagnet/semiconductor hybrid systems to explore spin pumping and the Seebeck effect as well as ferromagnet/piezoelectric hybrid systems to address magneto–mechanical coupling at high frequencies.
