Spin-flip effects on the current-in-plane magnetotransport in magnetic multilayers with arbitrary magnetization alignments

Abstract

An extended Boltzmann equation approach, with nondiagonal components of the electron distribution, function taken into account, is proposed to study spin-flip effects on the magnetoresistance (MR) in magnetic inhomogeneous systems with arbitrary magnetization alignments. The presence of spin-flip scattering is found to reduce the MR and to decrease deviation of the MR from linear dependence on sin 2(θ/2) where θ is the angle between the magnetizations of successive magnetic films.published_or_final_versio
