Physics and applications of spintronic nano – oscillators
We study linear and nonlinear phenomena in spintronic oscillators of various types including the spin-torque nano-oscillators (STNOs) and spin Hall oscillators (SHOs) based on ferromagnets, and SHOs based on antiferromagnets. We concentrate our efforts on the theoretical and numerical investigation of the oscillator dynamics and their electrodynamic properties, and on the R@D of microwave and (sub-)terahertz devices with embedded spintronic oscillators, optimization of the device performance.
We developed a rather general analytical theory for AC signal sources based on a single spintronic oscillator and oscillator arrays. The proposed sources based on a single antiferromagnetic SHO have output AC power ~ 10 µW at the frequency ~ 1 THz, and ten times larger if one utilizes an array of oscillators. We also consider the application of pulse generators based on antiferromagnetic SHOs as artificial “neurons” and logical circuits suitable for neuromorphic electronics.
