Enhancement of domain-wall mobility detected by NMR at the angular momentum compensation temperature

The angular momentum compensation temperature $$T_{rm A}$$ of ferrimagnets has attracted much attention because of high-speed magnetic dynamics near $$T_{rm A}$$. We show that NMR can be used to investigate domain wall dynamics near $$T_{rm A}$$ in ferrimagnets. We performed $$^{57}$$Fe-NMR measurements on the ferrimagnet Ho$$_3$$Fe$$_5$$O$$_{12}$$ with $$T_{rm A}$$ = 245 K. In a multi-domain state, the NMR signal is enhanced by domain wall motion. We found that the NMR signal enhancement shows a maximum at $$T_{rm A}$$ in the multi-domain state. The NMR signal enhancement occurs due to increasing domain-wall mobility toward $$T_{rm A}$$. We develop the NMR signal enhancement model involves domain-wall mobility. Our study shows that NMR in multi-domain state is a powerful tool to determine $$T_{rm A}$$, even from a powder sample and it expands the possibility of searching for angular momentum-compensated materials.
