In ferromagnetic nanowire arrays, where each wire contains multiple domain walls, it will be necessary to select an individual domain wall (DW) to move. In the field driven DW case, the field is typically applied globally affecting all of the domain walls in the system. We present micromagnetic simulation results demonstrating selectivity and control of an individual DW in such an array of nanowires using a combination of global and locally generated magnetic fields. Arranging the orientation of the local field allows for selectivity of a specific DW and its controllable movement to a new location.
