|Title:||Suppression of Orange-Peel Coupling in Magnetic Tunnel Junctions by Preoxidation|
|Published:||April 17, 2006|
|Abstract:||We have found that preoxidation of the bottom Co electrode in magnetic tunnel junctions (MTJs) very effectively suppresses orange-peel coupling. The result is a free layer that is much softer. Work by others has demonstrated that preoxidation is compatible with high-quality MTJ fabrication.|
