Abstract [en]

We study the behavior of the linewidth of a nanocontact based spin torque oscillator (STO) under application of a radio frequency (100 MHz) modulating current. We achieve a significant (up to 85%) reduction in the STO linewidth when it is modulated across a region of high nonlinearity. The mechanism responsible for the linewidth reduction is the nonlinear frequency shift under the influence of current modulation, which reduces the nonlinear amplification of the linewidth. The reduction in the linewidth during modulation can be quantitatively calculated from the free-running behavior of the STO.
