Abstract

Microwave-assisted magnetization reversal (MAMR) is numerically investigated for perpendicularly magnetized particles with a natural ferromagnetic resonance frequency of 22.5 GHz. The precession angle of magnetization can be enhanced intensively by increasing the amplitude of the ac hard-axis field with an optimum frequency. However, the precession of magnetization about the easy axis becomes unstable as the precession angle reaches a critical value because the easy-axis component of the effective field exerted on the magnetization becomes zero. The analysis of magnetization dynamics in MAMR showed that the precession of magnetization about an in-plane axis, appearing after the easy-axis component of the effective field becomes zero, plays an important role in the irreversible switching of magnetization.
