Wall structure changes in low-loss magnetic bubble materials


Transitions between underdamped and overdamped radial motion in magnetic bubble domains are investigated in a low-loss rare-earth garnet material. Three distinct types of domain wall structures, which are present during underdamped motion, have been identified. Bubble walls were subjected to a bias field pulse (H) and tested for underdamped motion sometime (τ) later. The first type of structure follows the form H = H' exp (τ\τ_0), with 170 nsec < τ_0 < 270 nsec for the first transition, and is not statically stable. Transitions associated with the second type are characterized by a constant critical angle Ψ_c between the magnetization in the middle of the wall, and the plane of the wall. For the first transition, Ψ_c = 230°, and for the second, Ψ_c = 370°. These structures are statically stable. The third type of structure is not statically stable, and H is independent of τ. The first and second wall structure types are associated with multiple transitions while the third only exhibits a single transition.
