Nucleation and Motion of Domain Walls in Cylindrical Nanowires

One of the most promising magnetic systems studied in the last years are the 3D nanostructures with curved geometry where novel and interesting magnetization textures and dynamics are involved 1-2. One of these nanostructures, cylindrical nanowires, present multiple topologically non-trivial magnetization structures such as Bloch-point domain walls, faster and more stable as compared to those in planar nanowires, vortices, and skyrmion tubes 2-3.
This talk presents different ways to manipulate the magnetization configuration and the domain wall dynamics in cylindrical nanowires. The control and stabilization of domains and domain walls have been achieved in multi-segmented structures 4 by alternating the magnetic anisotropy or by imprinting notches along the nanostructures length. The domain wall dynamics, under the influence of magnetic field or current pulses, was investigated by XMCD-PEEM and micromagnetic simulations. The results indicate that large current densities induce domain wall nucleation while smaller currents move domain walls preferably against the current direction but also along it. The pinning of domain walls has been observed not only at geometrical constrictions but also induced by the Oersted field which creates chiral domain walls.
