In 1955, a phenomenological theory of ferromagnetism was well established and had been corroborated by a considerable amount of experimental data. However, there were problems in the phenomenological theory of the dynamics of the magnetization field. The Landau-Lifshitz equation for damping of the motion of the magnetization field could not account for the large noneddy-current damping in thin Permalloy sheets. The problem undertaken herein is a reformulation of the theory in a way that is more… 

Gilbert ferromagnetic damping theory and the fluctuation-dissipation theorem

The phenomenological Gilbert–Landau–Lifshitz theory of magnetic damping in ordered magnetic materials has long served as the central model employed in the analysis of considerable experimental

Resonance damping in ferromagnets and ferroelectrics

The phenomenological equations of motion for the relaxation of ordered phases of magnetized and polarized crystal phases can be developed in close analogy with one another. For the case of magnetized

Nonequilibrium interacting electrons in a ferromagnet

Dynamics of the magnetization in ferromagnets is examined in the presence of transport electrons allowing the latter to interact. It is found that the existence of inhomogeneities such as domain wall

Effective magnetization damping for a dynamical spin texture in metallic ferromagnet

An additional magnetization damping for an inhomogeneous spin texture in metallic ferromagnets is calculated on the basis of the s–d exchange model. The effect of conduction electrons on the

Linewidth of ferromagnetic resonance for systems with anisotropic damping

Theory has predicted that the damping of magnetization dynamics may be anisotropic; i.e., it may depend on the momentary orientation $\mathbf{e}(t)$ of the magnetization in the crystal. In the

Micromagnetic modeling of anisotropic damping in magnetic nanoelements

We report a numerical implementation of the Landau-Lifshitz-Baryakhtar theory that dictates that the micromagnetic relaxation term obeys the symmetry of the magnetic crystal, i.e., replacing the

Mode-dependent damping in metallic antiferromagnets due to intersublattice spin pumping

Damping in magnetization dynamics characterizes the dissipation of magnetic energy and is essential for improving the performance of spintronics-based devices. While the damping of ferromagnets has

Origin of intrinsic Gilbert damping.

The damping of magnetization, represented by the rate at which it relaxes to equilibrium, is successfully modeled as a phenomenological extension in the Landau-Lifschitz-Gilbert equation by a nonrelativistic expansion of the Dirac equation.



Ferromagnetic Resonance and the Internal Field in Ferromagnetic Materials

A classical treatment of the domain energy terms of a homogeneous ferromagnetic solid leads to a formula for the internal field contributions from these terms. With this result, modifications in the

Motion of individual domain walls in a nickel-iron ferrite

Samples have been cut from single crystals of the nickel-iron ferrite (NiO) 0.75 (FeO 0.25 Fe 2 O 3 in such a way that they contain one and only one movable ferromagnetic domain wall. The viscous

Field dependence of the intrinsic domain magnetization of a ferromagnet

In this paper, the variation of the intrinsic domain magnetization of a ferromagnetic with the external magnetic field, is obtained. The basis of the treatment is the exchange interaction model

The Becker-Kersten treatment of domain boundary movements is widely applicable in the interpretation of magnetization curves, but it does not account satisfactorily for the higher coercivities

The time-decrease of permeability at low magnetizing forces

It has been found that in both normal and incremental permeability measurements the values obtained at low flux densities are increased by the application of a large magnetizing force, such as is

The theory of ferromagnetic resonance absorption previously developed is extended to include the effect of the shape of the specimen and, in the case of a single crystal, the effect of crystal
