Title

Effect of Magnetic Field on Quasiparticle Branches of Intrinsic Josephson Junctions with Ferromagnetic Layer

Abstract

The interlayer tunneling spectroscopy has been performed on micron-sized mesa arrays of HgBr2 intercalated superconducting Bi2212 single crystals. A ferromagnetic multilayer (Au/Co/Au) is deposited on top of the mesas. The spin-polarized current is driven along the c-axis of the mesas through a ferromagnetic Co layer and the hysteretic quasiparticle branches are observed at 4.2 K. Magnetic field evolution of hysteretic quasiparticle branches is obtained to examine the effect of injected spin-polarized current on intrinsic Josephson junction characteristics. It is observed that there is a gradual distribution in quasiparticle branches with the application of magnetic field and increasing field reduces the switching current progressively.
