We have investigated the magnetization reversal of fabricated Co/Pt nanomagnets with perpendicular anisotropy within a wide range of magnetic field pulse widths. This experiment covers the pulse lengths from 700 ms to 20 ns. We observed that the commonly used Arrhenius model fits very well the experimental data with a single parameter set for pulse times above 100 ns (t > 100 ns). However, below 100 ns (t < 100 ns), a steep increase of the switching field amplitude is observed and the deviation from the Arrhenius model becomes unacceptable. For short pulse times the model can be adjusted by the reversal time term for the dynamic switching field which is only dependent on the pulse amplitude and not on temperature anymore. Precise modeling of the magnetization reversal in the sub-100 ns-range is crucially important to ensure reliable operation in the favored GHz-range as well as to explore and design new kinds of Nanomagnetic Logic circuits and architectures.
