Diagram showing the measurement of the spintorque

The scientists explain that this diagram shows "the measurement of the spintorque experienced by the precessing magnetization, probed via the magnetic field dependence of a DC voltage. The symmetric component measures the in-plane ("x component") spin torque generated by a spin current, while the antisymmetric component measures the perpendicular component."
