We show that the angle-dependent Hall measurement is an effective method to determine the current-induced effective fields by investigating MgO/Fe/Ta and MgO/Fe/Pt/Ta multilayer structures. The experimentally obtained Hall resistance under a relatively large dc electrical current is well described by considering two components of current-induced effective fields, which may be related to the spin Hall effect and the Rashba effect. The directions of the effective fields are consistent with and their magnitudes are comparable to those reported previously for similar multilayer structures.
