Organic spin valves (OSV) are well known for the occurrence of magnetoresistive effects and resistive switching and, therefore, have a huge potential for applications. However, the exact mechanism of transport through the organic interlayer often remains unclear . Furthermore it has been demonstrated that the ferroelectric copolymer P(VDF-TrFE) in combination with a ferromagnetic La0.7Sr0.3MnO3 (LSMO) bottom layer exhibits large resistive switching (RS) effects .
The functionality of OSV devices for studying TAMR and RS requires smooth and continuous ultra-thin organic interlayers with clean interfaces. An easy way to deposit such films is spin-coating of dissolved organic polymer powder and subsequent thermal annealing.
This study reports on properties like morphology and thickness dependence of spin-coated P(VDF-TrFE) copolymer thin films on the deposition parameters. The films are deposited on epitaxial ferromagnetic LSMO layers grown by pulsed laser deposition on SrTiO3 (001) substrates. Furthermore, we present a patterning process for OSV based on P(VDF-TrFE) and LSMO, and a characterization of their magnetotransport properties.
