We theoretically study domain wall oscillations upon the injection of a dc current through a geometrically constrained wire with perpendicular magnetic anisotropy. The frequency spectrum of the oscillation can be tuned by the injected current density and additionally by the application of an external magnetic field. Our analytical calculations are supported by micromagnetic simulations based on the Landau–Lifshitz–Gilbert equation. The simple concept of our localized steady-state oscillator might prove useful as a nanoscale microwave generator with possible applications in telecommunications or for rf-assisted writing in magnetic hard drives.

    We show that disorder can modify dramatically the effective magnetic response of a composite metamaterial including its specific property of negative refraction. We demonstrate that a relatively weak disorder in the parameters of the split-ring resonators can reduce and even completely eliminate...
