Isolated sized microcontact. From the simulated magnetization pattern in (a) an MFM image is calculated (b) assuming a distance of between detecting dipole and sample reasonable for the experimental lift-scan height of (see Ref. 16). Measured MTXM images for applied fields of (c) , (e) , (g) , and (i) (saturated). The corresponding MFM images are shown in (d), (f), (h), and (j). The direction of the applied field is indicated by an arrow.
(a) MTXM and (b) MFM image of an isolated microcontact at remanence. In (c) and (d), simulated images are shown. (c) Micromagnetic simulation of (a) indicating a perfect agreement with the MTXM signal. (d) Simulated MFM image obtained from a modified OOMMF simulation (see Ref. 16) in concordance with the MFM image (b).
Magnetic domain structures of the microcontacts shown in Fig. 1 in a field of applied along the short axis. (a) MTXM image indicating a symmetric coupling between the closure domains in the upper and lower contacts. (b) Sketch of the domain-wall positions. The vertical solid lines in the lower structure indicate cross-tie walls. Dashed lines are to guide the eye in regions of weak signal. (c) Simulated magnetization pattern.
