Abstract

The power angular dependence for spin torque oscillators (STOs) is systematically investigated in magnetic tunnel junctions by varying the in-plane polarizer angle (IPPA) which refers to the angle between the free and fixed layer. The polarizer angle is adjusted by integrating a lithography process and a post-annealing process. An increase of power with increasing IPPA is experimentally demonstrated. STOs with a 30 and 60 IPPA show a 2-3 and 5-6 times higher efficiency in the power spectral density of the main peak than that with the traditional 0 IPPA, respectively. This increase of the power efficiency with IPPA for STOs can be explained by the power dependence on the precession angle at different IPPA.
