Spin-transfer torque magnetic tunneling junction devices capable of a multilevel three-dimensional (3D) information processing are studied in the sub-20-nm size range. The devices are built using He+ and Ne+ focused ion beam etching. It has been demonstrated that due to their extreme scalability and energy efficiency, these devices can significantly reduce the device footprint compared to the modern CMOS approaches and add advanced features in a 3D stack with a sub-20-nm size using a spin polarized current.
