All-electrical control and local detection of multiple magnetic domain walls in perpendicularly magnetized Co/Ni nano-wires were demonstrated. A series of domain walls was reproducibly shifted in the same direction by the current, keeping the distance between the walls almost the same. Furthermore, the walls can be shifted back and forth depending on the direction of the pulsed currents.
