Using time-resolved scanning electron microscopy with polarization analysis (TR-SEMPA) the dynamics of magnetic vortices and antivortices in a cross-tie wall is investigated. Under quasistatic external field drive both quasiparticles oscillate at opposite phase to each other (in analogy to an optical mode). An additional common motion, which stems from the finite boundary conditions in a patterned FeCoSiB rectangle, is observed (in analogy to an acoustic mode), leading in total to a stronger field-dependent displacement for the vortices compared to the antivortices. Both types of magnetic solitons are mutually coupled via the minimization of the total magnetic energy of the structure. It is shown that the TR-SEMPA results can be explained via coupling in the framework of micromagnetic simulations and that the coupling constants can be extracted. The motion is composed from the contributions of the two terminating vortices and a mutual vortex-antivortex coupling along the chain.
