Abstract

We investigate the rf power dependence of homodyne-detected ferromagnetic resonance (FMR) spectra of a nanoscale CoFeB/MgO magnetic tunnel junction, in which the FMR is induced by the electric-field modulation of the magnetic anisotropy. The increase of the rf power changes the spectral lineshape and decreases characteristic frequency, at which drastic change in spectrum is observed. The behavior is consistent with nonlinear magnetization precession with a large precessional angle at high powers. From the rf power dependence of FMR spectra, we determine electric-field modulation ratio of magnetic anisotropy energy density to be 78 fJ/Vm, which is in agreement with the reported values.
