We show that adding a perpendicular polarizer to a conventional spin torque memory element with an in-plane free layer and an in-plane polarizer can significantly increase the write speed and decrease the write energy of the element. We demonstrate the operation of such spin torque memory elements with write energies of 0.4 pJ and write times of 0.12 ns.
