Summary of "Vortex domain wall propagation in periodically modulated diameter FeCoCu nanowire as determined by the magneto-optical Kerr effect."

Control over the magnetization reversal process of nanowires is essential to current advances in modern spintronic media and magnetic data storage. Much effort has been devoted to permalloy nanostrips with rectangular cross section and vanishing crystalline anisotropy. Our aim was to unveil and control the reversal process in FeCoCu nanowires with significant anisotropy and circular cross section with tailored periodical modulations in diameter. Magneto-optical Kerr effect measurements and their angular dependence performed on individual nanowires together with their analysis allow us to conclude that the demagnetization process takes place due to the propagation of a single vortex domain wall which is eventually pinned at given modulations with slightly higher energy barrier. In addition these results create new expectations for further controlling of the propagation of single and multiple domain walls.

Barkhausen Noise from Precessional Domain Wall Motion.

The jerky dynamics of domain walls driven by applied magnetic fields in disordered ferromagnets-the Barkhausen effect-is a paradigmatic example of crackling noise. We study Barkhausen noise in disorde...

Movement of spherical colloid particles carried by flow in tubes of periodically varying diameter.

We provide analytical formulas for the movement of spherical particles in a corrugated tube, in the approximation of small amplitude of the tube diameter variation. We calculate how the particle is pu...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

CONFORMAL RADIOTHERAPY that combines several intensity-modulated beams to provide improved dose homogeneity and highly conformal dose distributions.

Rhythmic, intermittent propagation of a fluid through a BLOOD VESSEL or piping system, in contrast to constant, smooth propagation, which produces laminar flow.

Body ventilators that assist ventilation by applying intermittent subatmospheric pressure around the thorax, abdomen, or airway and periodically expand the chest wall and inflate the lungs. They are relatively simple to operate and do not require tracheostomy. These devices include the tank ventilators ("iron lung"), Portalung, Pneumowrap, and chest cuirass ("tortoise shell").

A family of transcription factors characterized by the presence of a bipartite DNA-binding domain known as the POU domain. The POU domain contains two subdomains, a POU-specific domain and a POU-homeodomain. The POU domain was originally identified as a region of approximately 150 amino acids shared between the Pit-1, Oct-1, Oct-2, and Unc-86 transcription factors.

A conserved protein interaction domain of the death domain superfamily that is structurally similar to the DEATH EFFECTOR DOMAIN and CASPASE RECRUITMENT DOMAIN. Death domains bind each other to form oligomers and occur on DEATH DOMAIN RECEPTORS, where they are required for APOPTOSIS signaling and non-apoptotic functions.
