Domain wall dynamics in nanowires

13 June 2012
Jonathan Robbins

We present some recent results concerning domain wall motion in one-dimensional nanowires, including the existence, velocity and stability of travelling-wave and precessing solutions.  We consider the case of unixial anisotropy, characteristic of wires with symmetrical (e.g., circular) cross-section, as opposed to strongly anisotropic geometries (films and strips) that have received greater attention.  This is joint work with Arseni Goussev and Valeriy Slastikov.
