Congratulations to our new paper ” Switching time Probing in electric field assisted magnetization of PbZrTiO3/Cobalt structure ” by M. Shafei, M. M. Tehranchi, S. M. Hamidi

Electric field assisted full
magnetization switching in a multiferroic heterostructure composed of a PbZrTiO3
(PZT) substrate and 100nm Cobalt (Co) layer was investigated. For this, by
measuring magnetic in plane anisotropy of the sample, using magneto-optical
Kerr effect (MOKE), it was shown that the sample has a uniaxial anisotropy. In
addition, the coercive field of the Co layer can be tuned by applying an electric
field to the PZT which can be used in electric field assisted magnetization
reversal in the Co layer. Direct measurement reveals that electric field
assisted magnetization switching in layers take place in about 100 µs that is
in compatibility with domain wall motion. Our measurement is a promising
technique for probing of switching time in electric field assisted
magnetization switching elements.
