The rf oscillation induced in a current-perpendicular-to-plane device with Co2MnSi (CMS) layers by spin-transfer torque was investigated to enhance the rf output power due to the large magnetoresistance (MR) ratio. A large MR ratio of 12.5 was obtained due to the large spin-polarization of CMS, and fundamental and second harmonic rf oscillations were clearly observed in the CMS layer. A high rf output power of 1.1 nW was achieved in spite of a small precession angle of 8.6.
