Dynamics of ferromagnetic domain walls under extreme fields

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

We report the existence of a new regime for domain wall motion in uniaxial and near-uniaxial ferromagnetic nanowires, characterised by applied magnetic fields sufficiently strong that one of the domains becomes unstable. There appears a new stable solution of the Landau-Lifshitz-Gilbert equation, describing a nonplanar domain wall moving with constant velocity and precessing with constant frequency. Even in the presence of thermal noise, the new solution can propagate for distances on the order of 500 times the field-free domain wall width before fluctuations in the unstable domain become appreciable.
