Temperature dependence of adiabatic spin transfer torque and current polarization in Ni80Fe20 by spin wave Doppler measurements
Meng Zhu, Cindi L. Dennis, Robert McMichael
A spin wave Doppler technique is used to measure the temperature dependence of both the magnetization drift velocity and the current polarization in current-carrying Ni80Fe20 wires. For current densities of 1011 A/m2, we obtain magnetization drift velocities decreasing from 4.8 m/s +or-} 0.4 m/s to 4.0 m/s +or-} 0.1 m/s over a temperature range from 80 K to 340 K. Interpretation of velocity values yields current polarization dropping from 0.70+or-}0.04 to 0:55+or-}0.01 over the same temperature range. Analysis indicates diff erent temperature dependencies for spin-up and spin-down conductivities, suggesting a strong impurity scattering of spin-down electrons.
