Curvature Effects in Thin Magnetic Shells

The submbicron-scaled magnetism of solid state is a rapidly developing research area with a promising applied potential. Nanomagnets are often considered as elements of fast nonvolatile memory devices of high density. Up to now the theoretical study in this direction was restricted mostly by planar structures. In the current research…

OOMMF Utilities 1.0

Object Oriented Micromagnetic Framework (OOMMF) is free, portable, extensible public domain micromagnetic program and associated tools, which was developed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). OOMMF is very powerful and useful tool which can be thinly configured for different micromagnetic studies, but at the same time, it…

Periodic magnetic structures generated by spin-polarized currents in nanostripes

We investigated the influence of a spin-polarized current on long ferromagnetic nanostripes. The magnetization behavior is analyzed for all range of the applied currents, up to the saturation. It is shown that the saturation current is a nonmonotonic function of the stripe width. For a stripe width increasing it approaches…

Regular and chaotic vortex core reversal by a resonant perpendicular magnetic field

We predict the regular and chaotic dynamics of the vortex polarity under the action of perpendicular ac magnetic field and propose a simple analytical description in terms of a reduced vortex core model. Phys. Rev. B, 88, 014432 (2013), 10.1103/PhysRevB.88.014432, PDF.

Magnetic vortex-antivortex crystals generated by spin-polarized current

We study vortex pattern formation in thin ferromagnetic films under the action of strong spin-polarized currents. Considering the currents which are polarized along the normal of the film plane, we determine the critical current above which the film goes to a saturated state with all magnetic moments being perpendicular to…

Bloch Point Structure in a Magnetic Nanosphere

We classify possible types of Bloch points and analytically derive the shape of the magnetization distribution for different Bloch points. Phys. Rev. B 85, 224401 (2012), 10.1103/PhysRevB.85.224401, PDF. Supplementary materials.

Out-of-surface vortices in spherical shells

We show that the curvature of the underlying surface leads to a coupling between the localized out-of-surface component of the vortex with its delocalized in-surface structure, i.e., polarity-chirality coupling. Phys. Rev. B 85, 144433 (2012), 10.1103/PhysRevB.85.144433, PDF.
