Spinmotive force due to antiferromagnetic dynamics

Ieda, Junichi  ; Yamane, Yuta*; Sinova, J.*

Recently, spintronics phenomena in antiferromagnets (AFM) attract attention. Especially spin transfer torque (STT) and spinmotive force (SMF) that have been established and play principal roles in ferromagnets become important subjects since they enable us to control and detect AFM dynamics. A few approaches have been theoretically proposed for treating these effects in AFMs but they are still under debate. In this work, we theoretically investigate SMF due to AFM dynamics by incorporating the finite canting between sublattice magnetizations, non-adiabaticity of the electron dynamics, and the Rashba spin-orbit interaction, which were all omitted in previous work. We show that the electric voltages can be generated by field-induced AFM domain wall motion and AFM resonance. This finding is useful as providing an electrical detection method of AFM dynamics and opens up the possibility of materials search for the larger SMF signals.
