Current-induced spin dynamics in ring-like atom clusters on surfaces — •Benjamin Baxevanis, Christoph Hübner, Lars-Hendrik Frahm, and Daniela Pfannkuche — I. Institut für Theoretische Physik, Universität Hamburg, Germany

Recently, much attention has been devoted to artificially assembled magnetic structures made of iron atoms on non-magnetic substrates using a scanning tunneling microscope [1,2,3]. Some of these structures show unique dynamics and switching of magnetism under the influence of a spin-polarized current and the interaction with the substrate [2,3]. We theoretically consider the spin dynamics in a ring-like cluster of Fe atoms on a substrate tunnel-coupled to a magnetic tip. Employing a master equation approach, the effects of the spin-polarized current, anisotropy field and symmetry of the ring-like cluster [4] on the spin dynamics are studied.
