  "description": "<p>Interfacing ferromagnetic materials with topological insulators is an intriguing strategy in order to enhance spin-to-charge conversion mechanisms, paving the way toward highly efficient spin-based electronic devices. In particular, the use of large-scale deposition techniques is demanding for a sustainable and cost-effective industrial technology transfer. In this work, we study the magnetic properties of the Co/Sb<sub>2</sub>Te<sub>3</sub> heterostructure, where the ferromagnetic Co layer is deposited by atomic layer deposition on top of the Sb<sub>2</sub>Te<sub>3</sub> topological insulator, which is grown by metal organic chemical vapor deposition. In particular, broadband ferromagnetic resonance is employed to characterize the Co/Sb<sub>2</sub>Te<sub>3</sub> system and the reference heterostructure Co/Pt. For Co/Sb<sub>2</sub>Te<sub>3</sub>, we extract an effective magnetic anisotropy constant Keff=4.26\u221910<sup>6&nbsp;</sup>erg/cm<sup>3</sup> , which is an order of magnitude higher than in Co/Pt (Keff=0.43\u221910<sup>6&nbsp;</sup>erg/cm<sup>3</sup>). The large difference in the Keff values observed in Co/Sb<sub>2</sub>Te<sub>3</sub> and Co/Pt is explained in terms of the different Co crystalline structures achieved on top of Sb<sub>2</sub>Te<sub>3</sub> and Pt, respectively. Interestingly, the Co/Sb<sub>2</sub>Te<sub>3</sub> system displays a relatively large Gilbert damping constant (&alpha; = 0.095), which we suggest as possibly due to spin pumping from the Co layer into the Sb<sub>2</sub>Te<sub>3</sub> topological insulator.</p>",
