We report the direct observation of current-driven domain wall (DW) motion in a CoCrPt wire with perpendicular magnetic anisotropy. Magnetic force microscopy showed that a single DW introduced in the wire is displaced back and forth by positive and negative pulsed current. This is the first demonstration of the current-driven DW motion in a metallic magnetic wire with perpendicular magnetic anisotropy in the absence of a magnetic field.
