A spin-polarized current is able to excite magnetization dynamics in nanomagnets. A detailed theoretical study of dynamics in low and high field regimes in AlO and MgO magnetic tunnel junctions (MTJs) is presented, considering the maximum value of the applied current which comes from the breakdown voltage of the tunnel barrier. In low field regime, dynamics with a well-defined peak in frequency is observed. In high field regime, AlO MTJ presents the same behavior, while the magnetization in the MgO MTJ shows chaotic motion with a noisy spectrum. Lastly, an effect of the presence of a pinhole in the tunnel barrier is discussed.
