The threshold current density was almost independent of temperature, although the external magnetic field to depin a DW was doubled at low temperature. The result is consistent with the theory based on the adiabatic spin transfer model. ©2011 The Japan Society of Applied Physics URL: DOI: 10.1143/APEX.4.063003 PACS: 81.07.Cf, 81.05.Bx, 75.70.Kw, 75.76.+j, 81.15.Cd
