Abstract
Remarkable reductions in the velocity of magnetic-field (or electric current)-driven domain-wall (DW) motions in ferromagnetic nanostripes have typically been observed under magnetic fields stronger than the Walker threshold field [N. L. Schryer and L. R. Walker, J. Appl. Phys. 45, 5406 (1974)]. This velocity breakdown is known to be associated with an oscillatory dynamic transformation between transverse- and antivortex (or vortex)-type DWs during their propagations. The authors propose, as the result of numerical calculations, a simple means to suppress the velocity breakdown and rather enhance the DW velocities, using a magnetic underlayer of strong perpendicular magnetic anisotropy. This underlayer plays a crucial role in preventing the nucleation of antivortex (or vortex)-type DWs at the edges of nanostripes, in the process of periodic dynamic transformations from the transverse into antivortex- or vortex-type wall. The present study not only offers a promising means of the speedup of DW propagations to levels required for their technological application to ultrafast information-storage or logic devices, but also provides insight into its underlying mechanism.
