Unformatted text preview: Check 2.a for the roles of each layer. MTJ : Major differences are : The profile structure is different. MTJ utilizes two ferromagnetic materials and one oxide. MTJ detects tunneling current through the oxide layer sandwiched between two ferromagnetic materials. The ferromagnetic layers can be aligned parallel or antiparallel to allow tunneling of electrons through oxide layer where one ferromagnetic is free layer (ex: NiFe) and another is fixed /pinned. Layer thickness in GMR and MTJ are thin....
