he dependence of damping on domain wall motion and velocity in Permalloy nanowires is presented. The domain wall motion in isolated two micron long Permalloy nanowires, with a rectangular cross-section 10 nm thick and 100 nm wide, is simulated using the Landau-Lifshitz Gilbert (LLG) simulation.Interpreting LLG dynamics can be difficult due to the dependence of the results on the Gilbert damping parameter alpha. The Walker model also predicts the critical field and domain wall velocity as a function of alpha. For these combined reasons the dependence of the domain wall speeds on the damping parameter is explored.
