Magnetic coupling and exchange stiffness in striped MnAs films
- We provide the first direct evidence of interactions in a self-organized pattern of coexisting ferromagnetic and paramagnetic MnAs stripe domains as a function of the coupling strength between the stripes (inter) and within one stripe (intra). The value of the intra exchange constant A = 17.7 × 1010 erg/cm is determined unambiguously from spin wave resonance. Additionally, in-plane ferromagnetic resonance measurements reveal the presence of a strong coupling between the neighboring stripes, which can dominate the weak intra-stripe interaction.
