Magnetic vortex dynamics nanostructures

Abstract : This thesis is aimed at studying experimentally the magnetisationdynamics of discs in the sub-micron range made of low dampingferromagnetic materials. For this purpose, an extremely sensitivetechnique has been used: the ferromagnetic resonance force microscopy. A firstpart is devoted to the measurement of the eigenmodes of NiMnSb discstaken in their remanent state: a vortex. The influence of aperpendicular magnetic field on the spin wave modes in the vortex state willbe detailled. Then, the coupling mechanism between the vortex core andthese spin wave, eventually leading to its dynamical reversal, ishighlighted. A theoretical framework of the vortex state is presented,allowing to model the experimental observations. In a second part,the problem of the collective magnetisation dynamics in several FeVdiscs is addressed. Measurements of the collective modes coupled bythe dynamical dipolar interaction are presented, associated with atheoretical modelisation which explain quantitatively the experimentalresults.
