SrRuO3 is an itinerant ferromagnet with Tc∼150k. When SrRuO3 is cooled through Tc in zero applied magnetic field, a stripe domain structure appears whose orientation is uniquely determined by the large uniaxial magnetocrystalline anisotropy. We find that the ferromagnetic domain walls clearly enhance the resistivity of SrRuO3 and that the enhancement has different temperature dependence for currents parallel and perpendicular to the domain walls. We discuss possible interpretations of our results.
