In this paper we studied effect of transversal magnetic field, magnetoelastic anisotropy and defects on DW dynamics of amorphous microwires. We observed that the viscous single DW region is limited by the samples defects, which determine the threshold between single and multiple domain wall propagation regimes.

Manipulating the magnetoelastic energy through application of tensile stress of studied microwires we significantly affect the DW dynamics in magnetically bistable microwires.

Under effect of transversal magnetic field, H b , we observed change of DW dynamics and we were able to create additional DW on the opposite wire end. Changing the H b we were able to tailor propagation field of this additional DW and observe DW collision in different parts of microwire.
