Harnessing skyrmions for electronics and spintronics applications

Skyrmions are ‘whirls’ in the magnetization of certain magnetic materials that show promise for future electronics and spintronics applications if they can be harnessed and manipulated. Naoto Nagaosa and colleagues from the RIKEN Center for Emergent Matter Science, in collaboration with Masahito Mochizuki from Aoyama Gakuin University and other researchers, have discovered that skyrmions can be manipulated thermally using an electron beam.
