We observe giant enhancement of microwave emission in MgO-based magnetic tunnel junction nano-oscillators through in-plane magnetic field orientation. At an optimal in-plane field angle, the output power reaches up to 240 nW, two orders of magnitude higher compared to the vicinity of the easy axis (∼1 nW). Moreover, in this condition, the linewidth is significantly narrowed (<100 MHz) and the additional precession modes are suppressed. Analysis of the data indicates that the optimal field angle is influenced by the field-like torque. The results demonstrate that controlling the in-plane magnetic field orientation can be an important strategy for developing high-power spin-torque oscillators.
