The domain wall dynamics driven by an out of plane magnetic field was measured for a series of magnetic trilayers with different strengths of the interfacial Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction (DMI). The features of the field-driven domain wall velocity curves strongly depend on the amplitude of the HD field stabilising chiral N\'eel walls... The measured Walker velocity, which in systems with large DMI is maintained after the Walker field giving rise to a velocity plateau up to the Slonczewski field HS, can be easily related to the DMI strength. Yet, when the DMI field HD and the domain wall demagnetising field HDW have comparable values, a careful analysis needs to be done in order to evaluate the impact of the DMI on the domain wall velocity. By means of a one-dimensional model and 2D simulations, we successfully extend this method to explain experimental results to cases where HD and HDW are comparable. read more
