Performance Study of PMN-PT/Ni-Based Multiferroic Nanomagnet for Straintronics Device Applications
Recent developments in the field of spintronics/straintronics create possibilities to replace current digital logic by nanomagnetic memory logic. This would be a promising candidate for highly dense and low-power applications. Magnetization orientations of nanomagnets are used to encode the digital logic bits. Nonvolatile and non-leakage features of nanomagnets make the system energy efficient. In the present work, the authors studied the performance of a PMN-PT-based multiferroic nanomagnet using the micromagnetic simulation software OOMMF. This work would pave way for potential applications of nanomagnet-based straitronics in modern devices.
