We found by micromagnetic simulations that the motion of a transverse wall (TW)–type domain wall in magnetic thin-film nanostripes can be manipulated via interaction with spin waves (SWs) propagating through the TW. The velocity of the TW motion can be controlled by changes of the frequency and amplitude of the propagating SWs. Moreover, the TW motion is efficiently driven by specific SW frequencies that coincide with the resonant frequencies of the local modes existing inside the TW structure…

The interactions between spin wave and stacked domain walls.
Mapping of SW reveals that the phase shift is a result of fast propagation of SW through TWs, suggesting that STWs may serve as an excellent SW channel, and shows that by varying TWs number and SW frequency, a wide range of transmission efficiency η can be obtained.

Temperature dependence of the spin torque effect in current-induced domain wall motion.
It is observed that, in contrast with field-induced domain wall motion, which is a thermally activated process, the critical current density for current-induceddomain wall motion increases with increasing temperature, which implies a reduction of the spin torque efficiency.
