The spin-orbit torque(SOT) effect provides an efficient way to manipulate the magnetic moment electrically and is a crucial technology for developing the next-generation low-energy, high-speed non-volatile magnetic memory. In this talk, I will present our results of the SOT and Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction (DMI) in light-element metal oxides (CuOx) and magnetic insulator (RIG) system via magnetic and transport measurement. Different from the traditional system composed of heavy metals and magnetic metal materials, on the one hand, the light-element metal oxide interface can generate orbital current via the orbital Rashba-Edelstein effect and then convert the orbital current to spin current, resulting in an enhanced spin-orbit torque stronger than that in pure heavy metals; on the other hand, thanks to the unique properties of electrical insulation, magnetic conduction, low magnetization and low magnetic damping in magnetic insulator materials, it can reduce the current for magnetization reversal and improve the speed of magnetization reversal. Through the systematic characterization of the atomic structure, magnetic structure, and spin torques, we proposed the mechanism of the generation of orbital current, the conversion of orbital current-to-spin current, and the absorption process of spin current, and find out how to improve the efficiency of magnetic moment manipulation. Our research will provide a physical and material basis for designing and developing high-performance spin-orbit torque magnetic random-access memory (SOT-MRAM).
