Three-dimensional magnetization textures: Discovery and control on the nanoscale

Project description

Harnessing the power of magnetic information carriers moving freely in three dimensions

Over the last couple of decades, magnetic materials have become controllable at the nanoscale, opening the door to unique phenomena with exciting potential applications. Magnetic nanostructures including nanoparticles, nanowires, self-assemblies, nanoclusters, nanogranules, multilayers and ultrathin films are finding applications in fields such as data storage, sensing, spintronics and biomedicine. Until recently, most patterned nanomagnets were 2D planar nanostructures. Advances in synthesis methods are now enabling 3D structures with unprecedented properties. Among the most interesting structures are magnetic solitons (MSs), a bound state of many elementary magnetic excitations or magnons. The EU-funded 3D MAGiC project brings together four leading research groups to take the field to the next level through theoretical and experimental investigation of the nucleation, stability, dynamics and transport associated with 3D MSs.
