    New Paper Published

    January 02, 2023

    Hamed's paper entitled "Low Power In-Memory Computation with Reciprocal Ferromagnet/Topological Insulator Heterostructures (link)" published in ACS Nano. In this paper, H. Vakili et al. show the use of two ferromagnet (FM)/topological insulation (TI) heterostructures to design an integrated 1-transistor 1-magnetic tunnel junction magnetic (1T-1MTJ) random access memory unit (MRAM) for an ultra-low power Processing-in-Memory (PiM) architecture.

    New Paper Published

    Golam's recent paper entitled "Positional Stability of Skyrmions in a Racetrack Memory with Notched Geometry (link)" published in Physical Review Applied. Hamed Vakili shared equal authorship in this paper. In this paper, we solve micromagnetic equations to simulate skyrmion trajectories and extract quasi-analytical equations for their energy barrier and their dependence on the material and geometrical properties of the racetrack. Our numerical study shows that it is indeed possible to create constrictions designed along a racetrack that can hold the skyrmions in place long enough for meaningful information storage, yet easily cleared with a modest current pulse.
