The φ0 junction demonstrates a rich variety of dynamical states determined by parameters of the Josephson junction and the intermediate ferromagnetic layer. Here we find several peculiarities in the maximal amplitude of magnetic moment y, taken at each value of the bias current, which we correlate to the features of the IV-characteristics of the φ0 junction. We show that a kink behavior in the bias current (voltage) dependence of y along the IV-characteristics is related to the changes in the dynamical behavior of the magnetization precession in the ferromagnetic layer. We also demonstrate a transformation of the magnetization specific trajectories along the IV-curve, magnetization composite structures, and hysteretic behavior in the bias current dependence of y. Due to the correlations between features of y and the IV-characteristics, the presented results open a way for the experimental testing of the peculiar magnetization dynamics which characterize the φ0 junction.

Key words: Josephson SFS junction, IV-characteristics, current-phase relation.
