We report a novel spin-torque diode (STD) radio-frequency detector by utilizing tilted fixed-layer magnetization and in-plane free-layer magnetization. Through macrospin modeling and numerical simulation, we study both the direct current (dc) dependence and the perpendicular external field dependence of the output voltage of the detector. We systematically investigate both the fixed-layer magnetization tilt angle dependence and the dc dependence of the resonance detection regime of the detector. It is found that an ultrawide resonance detection regime 6.5 GHz can be achieved, which is 1200% higher than the traditional STD magnetic tunnel junction detector with in-plane fixed-layer magnetization.
