Abstract [en]

We show that very low values of the magnetic damping parameter can be achieved in sputter deposited polycrystalline films of Co2MnGe annealed at relatively low temperatures ranging from 240 degrees C to 400 degrees C. Damping values as low as 0.0014 are obtained with an intrinsic value of 0.0010 after spin-pumping contributions are considered. Of importance to most applications is the low value of inhomogeneous linewidth that yields measured linewidths of 1.8 and 5.1 mT at 10 and 40 GHz, respectively. The damping parameter monotonically decreases as the B2 order of the films increases. This trend is reproduced and explained by ab initio calculations of the electronic structure and damping parameter. Here, the damping parameter is calculated as the structure evolves from A2 to B2 to L2(1) orders. The largest decrease in the damping parameter occurs during the A2 to B2 transition as the half-metallic phase becomes established.
