|Abstract:||The tunneling spin polarization (TSP) is directly measured from reactively sputter deposited crystalline MgO tunnel barriers with various CoFe(B) compositions using superconducting tunneling spectroscopy.We find that theMg interface layer thickness dependence of TSP values for CoFeB/Mg/MgO junctions is substantially different from those for CoFe/Mg/MgO especially in the pre-annealed samples due to the formation of boron oxide at the CoFeB/MgO interface. Annealing depletes boron at the interface thus requiring a finite Mg interface layer to prevent CoFeOx formation at the CoFeB/MgO interface so that the TSP values can be optimized by controlling Mg thickness. © 2012 Author(s).|
