Mechanism of Fast Axially Symmetric Reversal of Magnetic Vortex Core

Section: Nanosystems
Original Author's Text: English

Abstract: The magnetic vortex core in a nanodot can be switched by an alternating transversal magnetic field. We propose a simple collective coordinate model, which describes the comprehensive vortex core dynamics, including the resonant behavior, weakly nonlinear regimes, and reversal dynamics. A chaotic dynamics of the vortex polarity is predicted. All analytical results are confirmed by micromagnetic simulations.

Key words: magnetic vortex, nanodot, nanodisk, vortex random-access memories.
