This paper presents magnetization reversal in patterned single domain magnetic elements. The experimental setup consisted of elliptical permalloy elements produced on top of a pre-formatted gold strip. The external magnetic field was applied through the permalloy elements by passing electrical current through the gold strip. Magnetic force microscopy images of the patterned elements after various electrical currents were applied demonstrated the magnetization reversal.
