Droplet solitons are coherently precessing solitary waves that have been recently realized in thin ferromagnets with perpendicular anisotropy.In the strongly nonlinear regime, droplets can be well approximated by a slowly precessing, circular domain wall with a hyperbolic tangent form. Utilizing this representation, this work develops a general droplet modulation theory and applies it to study the long range effects of the magnetostatic field and a nanocontact spin torque oscillator (NC-STO…

Droplet solitons are strongly nonlinear, inherently dynamic structures in the magnetization of ferromagnets, balancing dispersion (exchange energy) with focusing nonlinearity (strong perpendicular
Stochastic ejection of nanocontact droplet solitons via drift instability
The magnetic droplet soliton is a large amplitude, coherently precessing wave state that exists in ferromagnetic thin films with perpendicular magnetic anisotropy. To effectively sustain a droplet,
Self-Modulated Soliton Modes Excited in a Nanocontact Spin-Torque Oscillator
Self-modulated bubble-like solitons, namely droplets, recently observed in spin-torque nanooscillators with a perpendicular free layer, are promising for applications in spintronics, magnonics, and
Propagating Magnetic Droplet Solitons as Moveable Nanoscale Spin-Wave Sources with Tunable Direction of Emission
Magnetic droplets are strongly nonlinear and localized spin-wave solitons that can be formed in current-driven nanocontacts. Here, we propose a simple way to launch droplets in an inhomogeneous
Freezing and thawing magnetic droplet solitons
Magnetic droplets are non-topological magnetodynamical solitons displaying a wide range of complex dynamic phenomena with potential for microwave signal generation. Bubbles, on the other hand, are
Thermal activation barriers for creation and annihilation of magnetic droplet solitons in the presence of spin transfer torque
We study noise-induced creation and annihilation of magnetic droplet solitons in experimental parameter regions in which they are linearly stable against drift. Exploiting the rotational symmetry of
Magnonic Band Structure Established by Chiral Spin-Density Waves in Thin-Film Ferromagnets
Recent theoretical studies have demonstrated the possibility to excite and sustain noncollinear magnetization states in ferromagnetic nanowires. The resulting state is referred to as a spin-density
Chiral excitations of magnetic droplet solitons driven by their own inertia
The inertial effects of magnetic solitons play a crucial rule in their dynamics and stability. Yet governing their inertial effects is a challenge for their use in real devices. Here, we show how to
