Importance sampling for thermally induced switching and non-switching probabilities in spin-torque magnetic nanodevices

12 Jan 2019  ·  Yu YiMing, Muratov Cyrill B., Moore Richard O. ·

Spin-transfer torque magnetoresistive random access memory is a potentially transformative technology in the non-volatile memory market. Its viability depends, in part, on one's ability to predictably induce or prevent switching; however, thermal fluctuations cause small but important errors in both the writing and reading processes... Computing these very small probabilities for magnetic nanodevices using naive Monte Carlo simulations is essentially impossible due to their slow statistical convergence, but variance reduction techniques can offer an effective way to improve their efficiency. Here, we provide an illustration of how importance sampling can be efficiently used to estimate low read and write soft error rates of macrospin and coupled-spin systems. read more
