We theoretically study the effects of interaction of the single electron confined in a piece of bilayer nanowire with the picosecond magnetic pulse. It is shown that the transverse time-varying magnetic field hybridizes temporarily the vertical modes in the electron wave function which eventually stimulates its motion along the wire axis. The dynamics of such magnetically driven motion depends on the geometry of the confining potential, the effective mass of the electron and the time duration of the magnetic pulse. We show that this effect can potentially be utilized for fabrication of the magnetic valve.
