Recently, the current-induced spin-transfer torque has been proposed as a convenient writing process in high density magnetic random access memory. A spin-polarized current can switch the magnetization of a ferromagnetic layer more efficiently than a current induced magnetic field. Our paper discusses the switching properties of a Stoner–Wohlfarth magnetic particle for the case when spin torques and external field pulses are simultaneously present. The theoretical investigation of precessional motion is described by using Landau–Lifschitz–Gilbert equation with a spin-transfer torque term included. The main goal is to determine the parameters of field pulse for that the fast and stable switching can be achieved.
