(solid-state physics)
A transition layer, with a finite thickness of a few hundred lattice constants, between adjacent ferromagnetic domains. Also known as domain wall.

In fact Bloch wall is a layer that separates neighbor domains with different magnetic directions.
It is expected that increase in milling time leads to increase saturation magnetization, because it will reduce the size of magnetic particles and total number of Bloch walls will also decrease.
If there is a Bloch wall between them, the direction of magnetization in the wall rises up out of the plane of the film, becomes vertical, then gradually descends until it is back in the plane of the film but 180 [deg.
