Self-organized criticality of domain walls and magnetization curve

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We propose a kind of Ginzburg–Landau equation with quenched randomness. There is a pinning-depinning transition in the system when the external magnetic force is changed. The transition is self-organized when the external magnetic field is slowly changed under the demagnetizing effect. The total magnetization increases stepwise and the probability distribution of the increase in the total magnetization approximately obeys a power law. A hysteresis loop is obtained when the external magnetic field is changed reciprocally. In our model, the coercivity in the magnetization curve is expressed as the critical value for the pinning-depinning transition.
