FIG. 3.

(a) Schematic representation of pulse trains with repetition rate of 100 and 0.2 Hz . (b) Magnetic switching observed for repetition rate of 100 and 0.2 Hz. The sweep rate of the magnetic field is 1.4 mT/s. At low repetition rates, switching is delayed until a pulse arrives.

(a) Schematic representation of a double-pulse train (100 Hz) with being the delay between two pulses. (b) Temporal behavior of the coercive field. corresponds to the coercive field detected in the quasistatic MOKE experiment. (c) The coercive field of the (Ga,Mn)As sample as a function of . As the delay is increased, the coercive field is reduced toward the that observed with the individual pulses. Solid line is a fit to Eq. (1) with the time constant .
