Abstract

With the feature of low-power and ultrashort time magnetization manipulation, all optical magnetic switching (AOMS) has been propelled to the forefront in investigations. To further speed up the magnetization reversal, in this paper, based on the combination of heating and Inverse Faraday Effect (IFE), an ultrashort square-wave laser (USWL) pulse is explored to excite the reversal of magnetization in a Co/Pt system, and all the parameters necessary for our simulation are well within the current theoretical estimates. Simulation results show that the switching time of magnetization is 3 times faster than the using of a traditional ultrashort Gaussian wave laser (UGWL) under the same laser fluence F = 4 mJ/cm2 and pulse duration t0 = 35 fs, and the threshold of AOMS for the ferromagnet is 0.67 mJ/cm2. We furthermore demonstrate that the heat accumulating effect of a laser-pulse is an important factor that influences the switching time, and a USWL has a larger effect of heat accumulating than a UGWL. At present, the debate on the origin of helicity dependent AOMS is still going on, and the model we propose provide a guideline for achieving helicity dependent AOMS more rapidly. We believe that the results could potentially be used to the field of storage technology especially for the using of AOMS.

Laser, femtosecond square-wave laser; LP, linear polarizer; QWP, quarter wave plate; L, lens; WLS, white light source; M, mirror; A, analyzer, C: CCD camera, BS: beam splitter. (b) The temporal profile of a USWL pulse centered t = t1, and the pulse duration is t0.

Fig. 2. (a) The magnetization dynamics after excitation by a USWL pulse with polarization of right-hand circularly polarized (σ = 1), linearly polarized (σ = 0), and left-hand circularly polarized (σ = -1), respectively, and the insets show the schematic diagram of the final magnetization state, obtained by the M3TM simulations. The laser fluence and pulse width of these three pulses are 4 mJ/cm2 and 35 fs, respectively. (b) The magnetization dynamics after excitation by a right-hand circularly polarized laser with different laser fluences, and the laser fluences are 0.4 mJ/cm2, 0.67 mJ/cm2, 1 mJ/cm2, 5 mJ/cm2, 7 mJ/cm2, and 9 mJ/cm2, respectively. Note: the 6 laser pulses have the same pulse width, and t0 = 35 fs.

Fig. 4. The magnetization dynamics after excitation by three different laser pulses with right-hand circularly polarized. (a) A USWL pulse with a pulse width of t0 = 35 fs, and the maximum value of Feff is about 70 J/m2; (b) A USWL pulse with a pulse width of t0 = 62.04 fs, and the maximum value of Feff is 40 J/m2; (c) A UGWL pulse with a pulse width of t0 = 35 fs, and the maximum value of Feff is 40 J/m2.

Fig. 5. (a) Temporal profiles of 4 different laser pulses. The first three laser pulses, which are two USWL pulses, and a UGWL pulse, have the same laser fluence F = 40 J/m2, and their pulse widths are 35 fs, 62.04 fs and 35 fs, respectively. The last pulse is a USWL pulse, and the laser fluence is 10 J/m2 with pulse width 35 fs. The center of these four pulses are all set at 150 ps. Their temporal energies are normalized to the maximum value of the USWL pulse with pulse duration t0 = 35fs, fluence F = 40 J/m2. (b) Evolution of laser energy W(t) of the 4 different laser pulses. The carmine dashed line shows the center of these four pulses.
