Engineering the dynamics of magnetic skyrmions
The increasing need for new magnetic storage applications has brought to the fore new topologically stable quasiparticles known as magnetic skyrmions. They show great promise for future electronics and spintronics applications if they can be harnessed and manipulated. It is thus important to understand their dynamics, their response to external driving fields, and their high energy dissipation losses. The EU-funded Q-Skyrmions project aims to design optimal ways to manipulate skyrmion dynamics under non-equilibrium conditions to achieve tuneable energy dissipation. Controlling skyrmion dynamics and dissipation rates will enable researchers to harness them for future low-power data storage applications.
