The topology and dynamics of stripe-like magnetic domains obtained in a ferrimagnetic garnet subjected to a time-dependent external magnetic field is studied experimentally and theoretically. Experiments are performed on a commercially available magnetic bubble apparatus, allowing the observation of the time-evolution of the magnetic domain structure. The system is modeled by a meso-scale Ising-type lattice model. Exchange and dipolar interactions between the spins, and interaction of the spins…

Monte Carlo simulation of lattice systems with RKKY interaction
Numerical approaches to the study of the magnetic states, properties, and phase transitions in the Ising spin systems with the long-range exchange interaction is presented. The Monte Carlo
A depinning approach of amorphous plasticity and dewetting
In the present thesis, two disordered systems are investigated from the depinning perspective. In both of them, the dynamics is governed by the competition between elastic interactions and a


Stripe domain structures in a thin ferromagnetic film.
We present a theory of the stripe domain structure in a thin ferromagnetic 61m with single-ion easy-axis magnetic anisotropy and long-range dipole interactions, for a wide range of temperatures and

I show that a model for the interaction of magnetic domains that includes a short range ferromagnetic and a long range dipolar antiferromagnetic interaction reproduces very well many characteristic
Evolution of magnetic bubble domains in manganite films
We report a thickness-dependent evolution of magnetic domains from long stripe-like to bubble-like entities in La1−xSrxMnO3 (x ∼ 0.3) (LSMO) films grown on LaAlO3 substrates. By using 2-D fast
Barkhausen instabilities from labyrinthine magnetic domains
Experimental investigations of the scaling behavior of Barkhausen avalanches in out-of-plane ferromagnetic films yield widely different results for the values of the critical exponents despite
Morphology and Local Structure in Labyrinthine Stripe Domain Phase
Analysis of globally disordered, nonequilibrium "labyrinthine" stripe-domain patterns in thin ferrimagnetic garnet films has revealed a well-defined local structure containing an oblong polygonal plaquette as the fundamental motif, surprising in view of the different mechanisms and concomitant topological constraints governing the evolution of disorder.

Stripe melting in a two-dimensional system with competing interactions
Simulations provide strong evidence confirming that the stripe phase order is destroyed in a defect unbinding transition, which predicts an eventual crossover from defect-mediated stripe melting to a spin-disordering (or particle-mixing) mechanism with decreasing repulsion strength.
The spin- 1/2 Heisenberg antiferromagnet on a square lattice and its application to the cuprous oxides
The spin-1/2 antiferromagnetic Heisenberg model on a square lattice is used to describe the dynamics of the spin degrees of freedom of undoped copper oxides. Even though the model lacks an exact
