|Title:||Coulomb blockade effects on magnetoresistance of granular magnetic media||Authors:||Jalil, M.B.A.||Issue Date:||15-May-2002||Citation:||Jalil, M.B.A. (2002-05-15). Coulomb blockade effects on magnetoresistance of granular magnetic media. Journal of Applied Physics 91 (10 I) : 7628-7630. ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1063/1.1450847||Abstract:||A full Monte Carlo simulation is performed of the magnetotransport across a granular system of Co nanoparticles, embedded in an insulating Al 2O 3 matrix. The interplay between spin-dependent tunneling and Coulomb blockade effects is modeled using the so-called "orthodox" theory of single-charge tunneling. The tunneling magnetoresistance ratio (TMR) shows a strong temperature dependence, especially for the case of nonmagnetic contact electrodes. This behavior contradicts previous predictions by Inoue and Maekawa [Phys. Rev. B 53, 11927 (1996)], and can be explained by considering the crucial role of the initial rate-determining tunneling step. © 2002 American Institute of Physics.||Source Title:||Journal of Applied Physics||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/82102||ISSN:||00218979||DOI:||10.1063/1.1450847|
