Dynamical Aspects of Magnetic Switching in a Single Molecule-Based Spin Valve
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2018

The dynamics of the current-induced magnetic switching process is theoretically studied in a spin-valve device containing a single magnetic molecule of spin S 1. The analysis is performed by using the real-time diagrammatic technique in the sequential electron tunneling regime. In particular, we show that the magnetic moment of a molecule can be reversed also in the presence of intrinsic spin relaxation processes. Moreover, we discuss how the process of magnetic switching depends on a transport bias voltage as well as on some key parameters of the device.
