We theoretically study the relation between stripe domains at remanence and magnetic normal modes in a single crystal Co bar. We find different stripe patterns depending on field history and in each case the domain structure can be related to a soft mode that triggers a phase transition. The stripe domain structure when the external field is along the long… CONTINUE READING
