Efficient Spin-Orbit Torque Switching with Non-Epitaxial Chalcogenide Heterostructures

Abstract: "The spin–orbit torques (SOTs) generated from topological insulators (TIs) have gained increasing attention in recent years. These TIs, which are typically formed by epitaxially grown chalcogenides, possess extremely high SOT efficiencies and have great potential to be employed in next-generation spintronics devices. However, epitaxy of these chalcogenides is required to ensure the... » read more
