The velocity of magnetic domain walls in Bloch wall Permalloy thin films excited by interrupted easy axis drive fields is investigated and correlated with the available theory of transient wall contraction. The experimental technique is useful in determining the average wall velocity, and by comparing the velocity-field curves with field duration as a parameter it is possible to infer several features of the transient behavior. It is found that, when the displacement of the wall is of the order of a characteristic distance associated with the wall coercive force interaction, the threshold field for net motion as well as the mobility of the average velocity curves depend on the field duration. The theory together with a breakable-spring model of the coercive force interaction reasonably explain the observed phenomena.
