The dynamic magnetization switching of a nanostructured exchange-coupled trilayer with a small thickness asymmetry is investigated by micromagnetic simulation. The magnetization switching initially occurs by coherent rotation, followed by magnetization oscillation. The switching time, which is about 9 ns at an applied field just above the switching field, is a factor of two longer than that observed for a single-layered thin film. A Fourier analysis of the magnetization oscillation shows multiple oscillation frequencies, the main frequency of which decreases as the applied magnetic field increases.

    It is simply demonstrated that the giant magnetoimpedance (GMI) response of a plate or ribbon is rigorously equivalent to the response of the same sample in ferromagnetic resonance (FMR) experiment. Thus, all of the solutions for FMR response behavior of metals may be applied to the description...
