Here, we study the effect of the Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction (DMI) on magnetic nuclei expansion in Pt/Co/Ir/Co/Pt perpendicular synthetic ferrimagnets. Magnetization reversal is explored as a response to the DMI, affecting the expansion of the magnetic nuclei. We report a nontrivial inverted dependence of the velocity of the double domain wall on the in-plane (IP) magnetic field. This effect is due to competition of the DMI contributions, resulting in effective fields of different signs in the two Co layers. We report a macroscopic manifestation of the DMI as magnetization reversal accelerated by the applied IP magnetic field. Accelerated magnetic relaxation is provided by the DMI-induced ellipticity of the magnetic nuclei, the spreading of which is accompanied by an enhanced number of nuclei contacts in comparison with round nuclei in the absence of an IP field. The obtained results clarify how the DMI contributes to macroscopic magnetic relaxation in the presence of the interlayer Heisenberg exchange interaction in synthetic ferrimagnets with perpendicular anisotropy.
