We investigate the influence of thermally activated process on coercivity values of long Fe nanostripes. By means of the Lagrangian multiplier technique and the micromagnetic approach, we evaluate energy barriers separating the two magnetization states of long Fe nanostripes, varying their width from 30 to 250 nm. As the width of nanostripes decreases, the reversal time, evaluated through the Arrhenius–Neel law, becomes comparable to the measurement time scale (characteristic for typical magnetometer) for fields below the values obtained through zero-temperature micromagnetic approach. We found appreciable variation of the coercivity due to thermal activation for stripe widths below 100 nm.

    Magnetization reversal in GdFeCo by circularly polarized light is shown to occur at the femtosecond time scale. In contrast to the well-known laser-assisted magnetization reversal based on the laser heating, we here demonstrate that this femtosecond all-optical magnetization reversal is more...

    We investigate the magnetization in the arrays of submicrometer-size disks fabricated from an epitaxial Fe layer grown on GaAs(001). The Fe disks having a layer thickness of 20 nm undergo a transition between multiple and single magnetic domains when their diameter is about 100 nm. Remarkable...

    We have investigated the origin of the huge magnetocaloric effect in a manganite system with ferro–antiferromagnetic phase mixture at low temperatures. We carried out magnetic measurements in fields up to 100 kOe in order to show that both a high hysteretic behavior and a metamagnetic...

    Investigation has been performed on exchange bias in a Co(32 Ã…)/NiO(10 Ã…)/[Co(4 Ã…)/Pt(6 Ã…)]4 multilayer after cooling at remanence. The easy axes of the Co/Pt multilayer and the 32 Ã… Co layer are different. Both exchange bias and vertical loop shifts have been observed in the...

    In this paper, we use simultaneous magnetometry and electrical transport measurements to critically examine ways in which the Curie temperature (TC) values have been determined in studies of dilute magnetic semiconductors.
