Compact Model of All-Optical-Switching Magnetic Elements

Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperJournal articleResearchpeer-review



We present, for the first time, a VerilogA compact model for an all-optically switchable magnetic tunnel junction (MTJ) using results of all-optical-switching (AOS) simulations. Our model is compatible with electronics and photonics design automation tools, and was tested using Cadence Specter and Virtuoso. This compact model can be used to design circuits and systems combining MTJs, photonic circuits, and electronic circuits giving the possibility to researchers working within this field to develop novel circuits and systems.
