Considerable difficulties exist in generating appreciable magnetic fields, localized on nanometer length scales for future experiments and technologies. Here we experimentally demonstrate selective reversal of a ferromagnetic nanowire by the stray field from a domain wall. The use of a domain wall as a persistent, mobile source of magnetic field is an alternative to localized Oersted fields and current induced switching, with possible use in future domain wall based data storage schemes and magnetic random access memory applications.
