English abstract:
To determine the formation energy and resistivity for domain walls in pemialloy
(fcc-Ni85Fe15) we use the fully relativistic spin-polarized screened Korringa-Kohn-Rostoker method for layered systems and the corresponding Kubo-Greenwood equation in the context of the (inhomogeneous) coherent potential approximation. We find that the difference in formation energy between 90 and 180 domains becomes very small if the domain wall width increases. Furthermore, we show that regardless of the configuration within a domain wall the in-plane components of the resistivity are larger than in a single domain and, in particular, that the anisotropic magnetoresistance ratio within the domain wall vanishes.
