Extra stability for magnetic knots

Published Sep 21 2020 at 7:17 AM GMT
  • Tiny magnetic whirls that can occur in materials - so-called skyrmions - hold high promises for novel electronic devices or magnetic memory in which they are used as bits to store information.
  • A fundamental prerequisite for any application is its stability.
  • A research team has now demonstrated that so far neglected magnetic interactions can play a key role for skyrmion stability and can drastically enhance their lifetime.
