Abstract: Magnetoresistive effect and electrotransport properties of Niх(MgO)100-х (x: 21-48 at.%) granular composites have been investigated. It is found that prepercolated composites (x < 24 at.%) do not exhibit magnetoresistive properties. After percolation threshold (x: 27-29 at.%) the composites exhibit isotropic negative magnetoresistance (-0,2 %) which has not tunneling nature. Also weak localization is realized in these samples at temperatures below 100 K. At high metal concentration (32 at.% < x) the composites exhibit anisotropic magnetoresistance.

Abstract: In this paper, we study the value of the tunnel magnetoresistance (TMR) as a function of the applied voltage in double barrier magnetic tunnel junctions (DMTJs) with the left and right ferromagnetic (FM) layers being pinned and numerically estimate the possible difference of the TMR curves for negative and positive voltages in the homojunctions (equal barriers and electrodes). DMTJs are modeled as two single barrier junctions connected in series with consecutive tunneling (CST). We investigated the asymmetric voltage behavior of the TMR for the CST in the range of a general theoretical model. Significant asymmetries of the experimental curves, which arise due to different annealing regimes, are mostly explained by different heights of the tunnel barriers and asymmetries of spin polarizations in magnetic layers.

Abstract: Magnetoresistive effect and electrotransport properties of Fe-NbO (13 ≤ Fe, at.% ≤ 80) thin films annealed at 600 °C has been investigated. It has been established that the samples structure contains three main phases Fe, NbO2, Fe2.9O4. Maximum of magnetoresistance in the samples does not exceed 0.3%, a coercive force is ranging from 150 to 370 Oe, depending on the Fe concentration. It is assumed that the films have a granular structure. Magnetoresistance and coercive force values, as well as the correlation between the magnetoresistance and the magnetization of the Fe-NbO samples are uncharacteristic for granular systems. It is assumed that uncharacteristic properties are due to the significant influence of ferrite Fe2.9O4 on the magnetic properties and electrotransport of the Fe-NbO films.
