    1. Nanoscale Spin Transfer Devices and MaterialsAndrew D. Kent, New York University, DMR-0405620 I An electric current flow through small magnets can transport spin angular momentum and dramatically affect the magnets, even changing their magnetization direction. As much information is stored in magnetic materials (such as, in hard disk drives) this phenomena, once better understood and controlled, may lead to ultra-fast and high density memories. A bottleneck to research progress has been the fabrication of magnetic materials which are less than 100 nm in lateral size with electrical contacts. With Dr. Sun at IBM Research, we are using a new nanostencil substrate method that enables the rapid prototyping of devices and materials. Experiments are in progress to establish the factors that determine the current necessary to change the magnetization direction and the efficiency of spin-transfer. Co Cu Co 100 nm First an array of undercut stencils are fabricated. Left: Then the desired layered structure is grown by evaporation of material onto the stencil. Right: Cross-sectional transmission electron microscopy image. Sufficient material is added to fill-up the stencil producing electrical contact to the top and bottom of the nanopillar.
