MgO-based magnetic tunnel junctions (MTJs) with a layer sequence Ir22Mn78 or Fe50Mn50 (10 nm)/CoFe (2 nm)/Ru (0.85 nm)/CoFeB (0.5t<2 nm)/MgO (2.5 nm)/CoFeB (3 nm) have been fabricated. The bias voltage dependence of tunneling magnetoresistance (TMR) is given as a function of the annealing temperature for these MTJs, which shows the TMR ratio changes its sign from inverted to normal at a critical bias voltage (VC) when an unbalanced synthetic antiferromagnetic stack CoFe/Ru/CoFeB is used. VCs change with the thickness of the pinned CoFeB and annealing temperature, which implies one can achieve different VCs by artificial control. The asymmetric VC values suggest that a strong density-of-states modification occurs at bottom oxide/ferromagnet interface.
