Abstract

Condensed matter physicists are constantly looking for interesting new states of matter and new materials with unique exploitable properties which reflect the complex quantum mechanical interactions of the electrons that bind them together. These electronic properties can sometimes be approximated to the sum of individual electrons moving within the material, such as the electrical conduction of electrons in simple metals or semiconductors like silicon. The properties are on the whole more interesting, however, when an accurate description of the material needs to account for the collective and correlated motion of large numbers of electrons. Such collective physics leads to the familiar ferromagnetic properties of materials like iron and, less familiarly, the phenomenon of superconductivity. In the latter electrons are able to flow through the bulk of a superconducting material without generating heat and extraordinarily high electrical currents become possible. This finds application, for example, in the large superconducting magnets required for MRI body scanners. Magnetism and superconductivity are often antagonistic phenomena, since they involve different arrangements of the spins of electrons. Spin is a quantum property of electrons that gives rise to intrinsic magnetic fields - it can be visualised as a tiny compass needle attached to each electron. In ferromagnetism all the spins point in the same direction, but in conventional superconductivity the electrons form pairs (Cooper pairs) in which the spins point in opposite directions. Ferromagnetism therefore normally destroys these Cooper pairs, and hence superconductivity, by causing their spins to align parallel.
Condensed matter physicists often look for new materials where ferromagnetism and superconductivity coexist, since this can suggest the presence of some exotic new form of superconductivity (or other novel quantum state). One example is spin-triplet superconductivity, in which the spins of a Cooper pair prefer to be aligned parallel rather than antiparallel. One way to try and engender such exotic states of matter is to grow artificial materials by depositing very thin superconducting and ferromagnetic films (a few nm thick) on top of one another. In this way the properties of the final structure can be tuned, sometimes leading it to exhibit behaviours that have never been found in naturally occurring bulk materials. An example of this is a unique kind of spin-triplet (so called odd-frequency) superconductivity that has recently been demonstrated in this type of thin film structure. The production of artificial materials can be taken a step further if one also patterns such thin film materials in the plane of the film using advanced electron beam lithography technology, to produce additional patterns and structures on the nanoscale. Such an approach could lead not only to the discovery of interesting new quantum phases, but could also to useful properties that could be exploited in future technologies, such as quantum computing.
In this project we bring together a team of experts with a diverse range of skills that can grow, pattern, measure and undertake theoretical studies on the type of nanostructured materials discussed above. One particularly novel aspect of our approach is the use of powerful imaging techniques involving neutron, muons, X-rays and bespoke scanning magnetic sensors to gain unique insights into both the basic physics at play in systems exhibiting odd-frequency triplet superconductivity as well as the relation between the detailed magnetic and physical structures and their exotic properties. Although the basic aim of this project is the pursuit of new scientific knowledge, we will be looking for interesting effects and properties that might find future applications.

Description I have co-founded a new field of condensed matter physics, superconducting spintronics, with pivotal theoretical publications, and within this grant I have contributed to the further development of this field. If superconductors are brought in contact with ferromagnets, the superconducting current carriers become spin-polarised, so-called triplet pairs, which allow for the presence of lossless supercurrents in magnetic materials. Such triplet supercurrents live over a much longer distance than usually superconductivity can live in ferromagnets, which is crucial for potential applications.
My group has developed a new theory for diffusive transport across spin-polarised interfaces between superconductors and ferromagnetes, published in New Journal of Physics.
My group has also contributed theoretical support to a newly discovered effect, the transfer of magnetisation across a superconductor into gold, published in Nature Physics. The induced moment can be tuned by varying the relative orientation of the magnetisation in two ferromagnetic layers in the spin valve structure. Furthermore we have developed a theory for so-called superconducting spin-valves, devices in which superconductivity is affected by rotating the magnetisation in a magnetic valve. We have recently theoretically predicted a new type of spin-valve, based on a re-orientation of spiral order in a magnet. I also have published a review article in Reports on Progress in Physics, summarizing theoretical and experimental results within the field of superconducting spintronics, which is highly cited.

More generally, this critical mass grant is supporting blue skies curiosity-driven research. In particular we are trying to understand the physics surrounding superconducting correlations in ferromagnet-superconductor hybrid structures, including the generation of triplet (equal spin paired) in non-collinear magnetic systems.

The project ran over 4 years and we have made significant progress with regard to our original 10 objectives, with a number of important results either published or currently being prepared for submission to leading physics journals. During the grant period we have established good partnerships with other leading groups in the field (Cambridge, Leiden, Konstanz, Paris, NTNU, Imperial) and have produced joint publications with these partners. One of us (Eschrig) now participates in a programme grant on the development of a superconducting spintronics demonstrator device together with University of Cambridge, UCL, and Imperial College. In addition, two of us (Burnell, Marrows) are involved in the related platform grant on magnetic metamaterials "Spintronics at Leeds".

The consortium associated with this critical mass grant originally set out an ambitious programme of objectives, and we have made significant progress across all fronts. Below we list 4 examples.

1. Spatially probe the novel spin-triplet state to detect spin-polarisation of Cooper pairs directly and explore new device architectures to enhance the formation and control of spin triplet pairs:
Experimentally we have placed limits on the size of this effect in the ferromagnetic and superconducting layer using polarized neutron reflectometry (PNR), XMCD and muon spectroscopy in a range of samples from our own and other leading groups. We developed highly functional spin valve devices based on a Co layer pinned by IrMn. We have also explored magnetic Skyrmion-based structures and the use of epitaxial Er in spin valve devices. Work on Er/Nb samples that is currently under peer review demonstrates that the superconducting transition temperature of a thin film can be controlled by the magnetic state of a helical magnet that can be programmed by an external magnetic field, constituting a prototype spintronics device. We derived a new theory for superconductor-ferromagnet interfaces appropriate for strongly spin-polarized magnets and diffusive materials, the case most relevant for applications. This solves a long-standing theoretical problem, sought since 1999, of how to implement boundary conditions for Usadel theory in spin-polarized systems. We also implemented Bogoliubov-de-Gennes theory for spin-valves and applied it to experiments within the consortium. A theoretical model of how the transition temperature of a thin film may be controlled by the magnetic state of a helical magnet is under current investigation (see arXiv:1702.08828). In addition we explored new device architectures involving weak link superconductor-ferromagnet structures, in a theoretical work (published in PRB) involving an Euromaster student at RHUL (Jan Gelhausen). We also explored the role spin triplet pairs generated at superconductor-ferromagnet interfaces play for the thermoelectric power generation, with a detailed theoretical study in collaboration with Konstanz, leading to a highly cited PRL and a New J Phys article.

2. Investigate the spin-polarisation of triplet pairs injected into N, conventional S and other materials:
Extensive progress was made in this area with a key publication in the field. We obtained the dramatic finding of an anomalously large magnetisation induced in a normal magnetic layer. The role of m=0 or m=+/-1 triplets in this process is not yet completely clear but provides a challenge to theory. The most recent experiments demonstrate that the magnetisation induced in a normal metal layer by the superconductor can be enhanced by the presence of only a single ferromagnetic layer placed adjacent to the superconductor. These results, which cannot be explained by current theoretical models typically applied to these system, are currently under peer review. Further results exploring the possible role of spin-orbit interactions are currently in preparation for submission. We performed extensive theoretical studies of spin-polarisation of triplet pairs injected into a normal metal or a superconductor, and elucidated in particular the role of spin-polarized Andreev bound states at superconductor-ferromagnet interfaces, work that involved collaboration with Imperial College (Leslie Cohen), and Leiden (Jan Aarts), published in Europhys. Lett.

3. Explore generic aspects of the interaction of magnetic and superconducting order at buried interfaces:
Using advanced characterisation to understand in detail the structure-function relation of existing spin-triplet devices, extensive data has been collected and is either published or undergoing analysis. We have carried out work both on our own samples and on those from leading groups in the field (Cambridge, Leiden, Hitachi GST), providing useful information on magnetic states and interfacial quality. These have been measured using muons (including Py/Nb, Ho/Nb, Co/Nb spin valves, Er/Nb, Co/Nb bilayers, NiTi/CoPd), PNR (including Ho/Co/Nb, Co/Nb spin valves, NiNb multilayer), and XMCD (including Co/Nb and Fe/Nb spin valves with delta-doped Mn). We have recently published an exploration of the influence of the superconducting state on the magnetic state of a spin valve, showing that a vortex mediated mechanism can be used to pin magnetic domains. Another work currently in preparation describes a system where a continuously tunable critical current can be achieved in a superconductor by choosing the magnetic state of an adjacent ferromagnetic Ni layer. We performed extensive calculations for induced magnetisation in a superconductor coupled to a ferromagnet at a buried interface, involving an externally funded PhD student (Roland Grein), and published in PRB.

4. Improve routes to the reproducible production of exotic hybrid superconducting-magnetic systems over areas large enough to be amenable to a wide range of quantitative techniques:
We have been highly successful in producing working devices suitable for investigation using a number of techniques systems including XMCD, muons, PNR etc. Some of us have also recently extended this methodology into other areas including collaborations to explore novel superconducting and spin transfer effects using hybrid devices that include C60 layers. We theoretically explored the role of spin-orbit coupling for the creation of spin-triplet pairs and for singlet-triplet mixing in materials that lack a center of inversion, and performed a detailed study of such materials, supported by a locally funded PhD student at RHUL (Niclas Wennerdal). This work is published in a book chapter and a recent PRB article. In addition we studied the interplay between odd-frequency superconductivity in superconductor-ferromagnet structures with the Meissner response, which includes a theoretical work in collaboration with groups in Russia and Japan, published in PRB.
Exploitation Route My findings provide the theoretical basis of future applications in the field of superconducting spintronics. Thus, they are of fundamental importance for bringing this field forward.
The findings provide a basis for a subsequent EPSRC Programme Grant, EP/N017242/1.

PI Contribution The SFM Consortium is funded by a Critical Mass grant from the EPSRC for 4 years of research which started on 1st March 2012. The Consortium, built from 5 UK nodes, also has associated members at University of Cambridge, University of Leiden and Paul Scherrer Institute. My team is providing the theoretical support to the experimental activities at the four remaining nodes of the consortium.
Collaborator Contribution The aim of the project is to use advanced characterisation to understand and control novel ground states in hybrid superconducting-magnetic devices. The key novelty of the project is to use a range of techniques to image, in the broadest sense, signatures of these exotic ground states, in order to provide unique insight into these systems. All experimental input for my theoretical investigations come from the remaining partners of the consortium.
