    By using photoelectron emission microscopy, we systematically investigated the magnetic domain in the La0.6 Sr0.4 Mn O3 patterned thin film with several microns, in which we can control the ratio of a shape anisotropy to a step-induced uniaxial anisotropy in magnitude. We demonstrate that a cooperative effect of a step-induced uniaxial anisotropy with a shape anisotropy causes the formation of a single domain, whereas the competitive effect makes a multimagnetic domain.
