Recent experiments show that spin-polarized current may influence the state of generally accessory element of spin valves, an antiferromagnetic (AFM) layer, which is used for "pinning." Here we study the dynamics of AFM component of the "pinned" ferromagnetic (FM) layer induced by simultaneous application of the spin-polarized current and external magnetic field. We find stability range of such a configuration of FM/AFM system in which orientation of FM magnetization is parallel to AFM vector. We calculate the field dependence of the critical current for different orientations of the external magnetic field with respect to the crystal axes of FM/AFM bilayer. We show the possibility of stable current-induced precession of AFM vector around FM magnetization with the frequency that linearly depends on the bias current. Furthermore, we estimate an optimal duration of the current pulse required for switching between different states of FM/AFM system and calculate the current and field dependencies of switching time. The results obtained reveal the difference between dynamics of ferromagnets and antiferromagnets subjected to spin transfer torques. © 2010 The American Physical Society. Source

Antiferromagnets (AFMs), in contrast to ferromagnets, show a nontrivial magnetic structure with zero net magnetization. However, they share a number of spintronic effects with ferromagnets, including spin pumping and spin-transfer torques. Both phenomena stem from the coupled dynamics of free carriers and localized magnetic moments. In the present paper I study the adiabatic dynamics of spin-polarized electrons in a metallic AFM exhibiting a noncollinear 120° magnetic structure. I show that the slowly varying AFM spin texture produces a non-Abelian gauge potential related to the time and space gradients of the Néel vectors. Corresponding emergent electric and magnetic fields induce rotation of spin and influence the orbital dynamics of free electrons. I discuss both the possibility of a topological spin Hall effect in the vicinity of topological AFM solitons with nonzero curvature and rotation of the electron spin traveling through the AFM domain wall. © 2015 American Physical Society.

This paper is devoted to the development of an optimal control system of trajectory movement of a mobile robot. Synthesis of the trajectory control law is based on the methods of optimal control and asymptotical methods of singular perturbation theory. Singular perturbation theory's methods are used for reducing the order of the solving problem and it helps to simplify the realization of the control law. Proposed system has two control loops: position control loop and velocity control loop. Based on this, the structure of the control system is represented by two modules: the reference and the executive. In this work the results of experimental verification of the trajectory control system at the mobile robot Rover5 with the tank-type chassis are presented. Source

I present the Floquet scattering matrix theory of low-frequency heat fluctuations in driven quantum-coherent conductors in the linear response regime and beyond. The Floquet theory elucidates the use of the Callen-Welton fluctuation-dissipation theorem for a description of heat fluctuations in a multiterminal case. The intrinsic fluctuations of energy of dynamically excited electrons are identified as the fundamental source of heat noise not revealed by the electrical noise. The role of backscattering in the increase of heat noise above the level defined by the Callen-Welton theorem is highlighted. The exception is the case when a conductor is driven by a Lorentzian voltage pulse with quantized flux. The heat noise in this case falls down to the level pertaining to a linear response regime. © 2014 American Physical Society. Source

Physical Review B - Condensed Matter and Materials Physics

A new principle of manipulation of an electron phase is proposed. The phase is added not directly to an electron but to a finite-length portion of the Fermi sea associated with it, which I name a phase carrier. This phase can be read out with the help of an imbalanced interferometer, where the phase carrier interferes with the reference Fermi sea. As a result of such interference, the same value but opposite sign charge appears at the interferometer's outputs. A phase carrier can be created, for instance, with the help of an on-demand single-electron source able to produce excitations with multiple-peak density profiles. © 2014 American Physical Society.
