We report a combined experimental and theoretical study on the influence of slanted nanostripe edges on the magnetic domain wall (DW) dynamics in permalloy nanostripes. The DWs show a significantly different behavior in the same sample depending on the magnetization configuration in the DW. We explain these characteristics via a difference of the stray field generated by the out-of-plane magnetization inside the DW in the nanostripe edge region during DW motion.

    We report a study of demagnetization protocols for frustrated arrays of interacting single-domain permalloy nanomagnets by rotating the arrays in a changing magnetic field. The most effective demagnetization is achieved by not only stepping the field strength down while the sample is rotating,...

    The simulated domain wall dynamics in rectangular 10 nm thick, 2000 nm long Permalloy wires of varying width is presented. In the absence of an applied field the static domain wall length is found to be linearly dependent to the width of the nanowire. As magnetic fields of increasing strength...

    Considerable difficulties exist in generating appreciable magnetic fields, localized on nanometer length scales for future experiments and technologies. Here we experimentally demonstrate selective reversal of a ferromagnetic nanowire by the stray field from a domain wall. The use of a domain...
