    We experimentally demonstrate that the stress-induced magnetic anisotropy in composition-graded ferromagnetic NiFeTa layers can be employed to trigger exchange bias in NiFeTa/IrMn bilayers without using any deposition field or field cooling procedure. In particular, we found that the NiFeTa/IrMn...

    Magnetic cell positioning is demonstrated by controlling the magnetic domain walls in ferromagnetic zigzag thin films. Magnetophoresis experiment is performed to determine the number of magnetic nanoparticles that enter the cells by endocytosis. It is observed that in the zigzag structure with...

    The effect of annealing under applied stress on magnetic properties of Co-based or CoFeNi-based glass-coated microwires was studied. It was found that CoFeNi-based microwires became bistable after annealing because of changing of magnetostriction constant sign, while Cobased microwires keep...

    Devices based on mesas were fabricated from thin films of magnetically phase-separated La0.6Ca0.4MnO3. Low-field magnetoresistance arises because the volume fraction of the ferromagnetic metallic phase is large enough for percolation but small enough to permit magnetic decoupling between each...

    The magnetic domain structure is a specific property of ferromagnetic materials. The main magnetic properties and core losses depend on its configuration and dimensions. The aim of this work was to determine a relationship between the domain structure, observed by means of magneto-optic Kerr...

    Measuring the residual magnetic field provides a promising tool for evaluating stress in ferromagnetic materials. Under the excitation of the geomagnetic field, stress can induce spontaneous magnetic signals in ferromagnetic materials, which can be used potentially to evaluate the stress...

    The steady motion of magnetic domain wall driven by spin-orbit torques is investigated analytically in the heavy/ferromagnetic metal nanowires for three cases with a current transverse to the in-plane and perpendicular easy axis, and along the in-plane easy axis. By the stability analysis of...
