Electronic noise in magnetic tunnel junctions

View publication


The voltage noise in magnetic tunneling junctions (MTJ) and the dependence of this electronic noise on bias and magnetic field were determined. Noise with a Gaussian amplitude distribution and a pure 1/f power spectrum that scales as V2 are generally observed, however, deviations are seen. Such deviations can occur on a Lorentzian character above a critical bias value.
