Description
In this paper we present theoretical studies of spin dependent transport in Fe/Cr/MgO/Fe tunnel junctions with non-collinear alignment of magnetizations of metallic layers comprising these MTJs. Calculations are performed with use of non-equilibrium Green function technique in the framework of Keldysh formalism. WKB approximation is used for wave and Green functions in the trapezoidal barrier region under applied voltage. Electronic structure of ferromagnetic electrodes is modeled with two bands model, i.e. with majority s-electrons and minority d-holes. Furthermore, we introduce s-d hybridization by calculating the corresponding perturbation corrections for the wave and Green functions.
