Geometry-induced motion of magnetic domain walls in curved nanostripes

Dynamics of topological magnetic textures are typically induced externally by, e.g., magnetic fields or spin/charge currents. Here, we demonstrate the effect of the internal-to-the-system geometry-induced motion of a domain wall in a curved nanostripe. Being driven by a gradient of the curvature of a stripe with biaxial anisotropy, transversal domain…

Curvature and torsion effects in spin-current driven domain wall motion

The domain wall motion along a helix-shaped nanowire is studied for the case of spin-current driving via the Zhang-Li mechanism. The analysis is based on the collective variable approach. Two effects are ascertained: (i) the curvature results in the appearance of the Walker limit for a uniaxial wire, and (ii)…
