Abstract

Biosensing with ferromagnet-based magnetoresistive devices has been dominated by electrical detection of particle-induced changes to a device’s (quasi-)static magnetic configuration. There are however potential advantages to be gained from using field dependent, high frequency resonant magnetization dynamics for magnetic particle detection. Here, we demonstrate the use of nanoconfined ferromagnetic resonances in periodically nanopatterned magnetic films for the detection of adsorbed magnetic particles having diameters ranging from 6 nm to 4 um. The nanopatterned films contain arrays of holes which appear to act as preferential adsorption sites for small particles. Hole-localized particles act in unison to shift the frequencies of the patterned layer’s ferromagnetic-resonance modes, with shift polarities determined by the localization of each mode within the nanopattern’s repeating unit cell. The same polarity shifts are observed for a large range of coverages, even when quasicontinuous particle sheets form above the hole-localized particles. For large particles, preferential adsorption no longer occurs, leading to resonance shifts with polarities that are independent of the mode localization, and amplitudes that are comparable to those seen in continuous layers. Indeed, for nanoparticles adsorbed onto a continuous layer, the particle-induced shift of the layer’s fundamental mode is up to 10 times less than that observed for nanoconfined modes in the nanopatterned systems, the low shift being induced by relatively weak fields emanating beyond the particle in the direction of the static applied field. This result highlights the importance of having particles consistently positioned in the close vicinity of confined modes.
