Spin-Polarized Current-Driven Ferromagnetic Domain Wall Motion with a Skyrmion-Like Building Block
Keywords:ferromagnet, domain wall, skyrmion-like building block, spin-polarized current
The purpose of the research is the construction of an analytic model for the description of a spin-polarized current-driven ferromagnetic domain wall motion with a skyrmion-like building block. The motion velocity of the ferromagnetic domain wall with a skyrmion-like building block is found as a function of the driving torques and an external magnetic field strength.
