Abstract

We demonstrate all-optical magnetic switching (AOS) in an amorphous Tb30Fe70 thin film, triggered by a 5.1 MHz laser oscillator. The magnetic layer is grown on SiO2/Si substrate. An identical magnetic film deposited on a microscope glass slide reveals no AOS but solely thermally induced demagnetization. This effect is due to heat accumulation by multiple laser pulses because of the low thermal conductivity of the glass substrate. In contrast, the use of a proper heat sink (e.g. SiO2/Si) avoids the need for low repetitive laser amplifier systems to induce AOS and paves the way for a cheap and simple technical implementation using conventional laser oscillators.

Schematic drawing of the experimental setup and the samples. Top: Both switching and imaging pulses are provided by a laser oscillator with a repetition rate of 5.1 MHz. See main text for a detailed description of the optical elements. Bottom: Schematic drawing of the samples. ”AOS” denotes helicity-dependent all-optical switching and “PTD” stands for pure thermal demagnetization.

Helicity controlled all-optical magnetic switching (AOS) in a Tb30Fe70 film and pure thermal demagnetization (PTD) in a Tb19Fe81 film, both deposited on a SiO2/Si substrate and excited by a 5.1 MHz laser oscillator. Scanning Kerr images (45 x 45) µm2 for (a) – (c) Tb30Fe70 and (d) – (f) Tb19Fe81. (a) and (d) show a homogeneous sample magnetization before laser excitation. For Tb30Fe70 AOS occurs for a threshold laser fluence of (1.7 ± 0.1) mJ/cm2. Helicity independent PTD is observed in Tb19Fe81 after exposure with a threshold fluence of (1.3 ± 0.1) mJ/cm2.

(b) After excitation with σ+ polarized laser pulses at (1.3 ± 0.1) mJ/cm2, and (c) excitation with σ- polarized laser pulses at the same fluence and the same sample position as in (b). White circles mark the area of exposure with switching pulses.
