Dynamic behavior of domain walls in double layer self-biasing bubble garnet films


Radial expansion of bubbles and gradient bubble propagation experiments were conducted in a double layer garnet film with perpendicular anisotropy in both layers. Implanted and as-grown samples are compared. In radial expansion the side walls of the bubble exhibit a linear mobility much lower than calculated from γΔ/α. Saturation occurs at high drives (35 Oe). At drives above 50 Oe the saturation velocity of 27 m/s occurs only in the first 120 ns of the motion. After that the velocity drops to 17.5 m/s still independent of drive. This break in velocity does not occur in implanted samples, where the saturation velocity depends on implantation conditions. In gradient propagation saturation occurs at fields an order of magnitude smaller. The saturation velocity is independent of implantation, but overshoot depends strongly on it. No creep was detected. The 180° head-on domain wall between the two layers is found to have little effect on the dynamics of the side walls of the bubble. The motion of the head-on wall is also investigated and its velocity estimated. This head-on wall exhibits a linear mobility and a saturation velocity at high drives.
