In all cases correlations grow linearly at small distances, as in mean-field models, but in contrast to the latter are bounded at large distances. As a consequence, avalanches are anti-correlated. We derive bounds for these anticorrelations, which are saturated in the experiments, showing that the multiple domain walls in our samples effectively behave as a single wall.

Abstract

We present a proof of principle for the validity of the functional renormalization group, by measuring the force correlations in Barkhausen-noise experiments. Our samples are soft ferromagnets in two distinct universality classes, differing in the range of spin interactions, and the effects of eddy currents. We show that the force correlations have a universal form predicted by the functional renormalization group, distinct for short-range and long-range elasticity, and mostly independent of eddy currents. In all cases correlations grow linearly at small distances, as in mean-field models, but in contrast to the latter are bounded at large distances. As a consequence, avalanches are anti-correlated. We derive bounds for these anticorrelations, which are saturated in the experiments, showing that the multiple domain walls in our samples effectively behave as a single wall.
