Employing time-resolved x-ray microscopy, we investigate the dynamics of a pinned magnetic vortex domain wall in a magnetic nanowire. The gyrotropic motion of the vortex core is imaged in response to an exciting ac current. The elliptical vortex core trajectory at resonance reveals asymmetries in the local potential well that are correlated with the pinning(More)
The reversal of the magnetization under the influence of a field pulse has been previously predicted to be an incoherent process with several competing phenomena such as domain wall relaxation, spin wave-mediated instability regions, and vortex-core mediated reversal dynamics. However, there has been no study on the direct observation of the switching(More)
