Electric Field Driven Magnetic Domain Wall Motion in Iron Garnet Films
The room temperature magnetoelectric effect was observed in epitaxial iron garnet films that appeared as magnetic domain wall motion induced by electric field. The films grown on gadolinium-gallium garnet substrates with various crystallographic orientations were examined. The effect was observed in (210) and (110) films and was not observed in (111) films. Dynamic observation of the domain wall motion in 800 kV/cm electric field pulses gave the domain wall velocity in the range 30÷50 m/s. Similar velocity was achieved in magnetic field pulse about 50 Oe.
