Magnetic domain wall (DW) motion induced by currents in a perpendicularly magnetized Co/Ni nanowire has been investigated both at room temperature and low temperature. 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.
