Abstract

Using a laterally configured structure, we demonstrate modulation of the magnetization dynamics of an epitaxial Heusler ferromagnet, Fe3Si, by nonlocally injecting pure spin currents. From the ferromagnetic resonance signals, the effective Gilbert damping constant () of the epitaxial Fe3Si nanomagnet is estimated to be ∼0.003 at room temperature. By using the lateral and nonlocal spin injection, the value of the epitaxial Fe3Si nanomagnet can be modulated from 0.0034 to 0.0024. This study will open a way for control of the magnetization dynamics of high-performance ferromagnetic Heusler alloys due to pure spin currents even in laterally configured structures.
