The need for low-power data storage in magnetic memory devices for next generation MRAM such as the SOT-MRAM devices requires understanding the magnetisation dynamics in materials envisioned for use in such devices. Ferromagnets (FM) sandwiched between heavy metal (HM) and oxide thin films exhibit novel chiral structures[1,2] arising from an interfacial Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya Interaction. For applications it is most interesting to achieve low threshold currents for switching the magnetic state and to utilise spin orbit torques[3] for manipulation of the magnetisation in systems with a strong perpendicular anisotropy. In this study, the domain structures formed in sputtered thin films of W/CoFeB/MgO and Ta/CoFeB/MgO lacking structural inversion symmetry are studied and their perpendicular magnetic anisotropy is investigated along with the effects of different underlayers.
