Nanomagnets affected by spin-polarized tunneling and field-emission — •Johannes Friedlein, Anika Schlenhoff, Stefan Krause, Andreas Sonntag, and Roland Wiesendanger — Institute of Applied Physics, University of Hamburg

Understanding the interaction of spin-polarized electrons with magnetic solids is a key aspect in advanced spin-electronic applications.
In general, a spin-polarized current affects a nanomagnet by Joule heating and magnon generation. In order to investigate similarities and differences of the interaction of tunneling and field-emitted electrons with magnetic matter on the atomic scale, we performed a combined spin-polarized tunneling microscopy (SP-STM) and spin-polarized scanning field-emission microscopy (SP-SFEM) study [1,2]. From a detailed lifetime analysis of a thermally switching nanomagnet, we extract the impact of spin-polarized tunneling and field-emitted electrons on Joule heating and spin-transfer torque. Whereas tunneling electrons carry low-energy into the magnet, high-energy field-emitted electrons are injected into the spin-dependent image potential states located in the vacuum in front of the magnet and subsequently relax into the sample [3]. We will present the experimental results in terms of current-dependent generation of Joule heating, magnons and Stoner excitations.
