With Monte Carlo simulations, we study the creep motion of a domain wall in the two-dimensional random-field Ising model with a driving field. We observe the nonlinear field-velocity relation, and determine the creep exponent μ. To further investigate the universality class of the creep motion, we also measure the roughness exponent ζ and energy barrier exponent ψ from the zero-field relaxation process. We find that all the exponents depend on the strength of disorder.
