Magnetic skyrmions are localized chiral spin textures, which offer great promise to store and process information at the nanoscale. The unique sense of rotation of their surrounding domain wall, called chirality, is resulting from the so-called Dzyaloshinskii−Moriya Interaction. C.E. Fillion et al. have managed the inversion of the skyrmion chirality by applying a gate voltage, […]

Skyrmions in synthetic antiferromagnets are appealing for use in future memory and computing devices, combining small size and fast motion, but creating, stabilizing, and observing them remains a challenge. Here, we demonstrate the stabilization and current and light induced nucleation of skyrmions in a synthetic antiferromagnet, observing the magnetization texture in each layer using X-ray […]

A recent breakthrough in understanding the thermal effects on the magnetic properties of perpendicularly magnetized Fe/MgO interfaces is reported. It turns out that the macroscopic mechanisms play a decisive role in determining the thermal stability of magnetization in such structures. The perpendicular magnetic anisotropy (PMA) at magnetic transition metal/oxide interfaces(TM/Ox) is a key element in […]

Context. Spintronics has become a mature technology for applications, such as magnetic field sensing and solid-state memories. However, existing concepts are almost exclusively based on planar processes such as thin film deposition and patterning. Extending spintronics to 3D devices would provide new integrated functionalities such as three-dimensional magnetic field sensors, and also open prospects for […]
