(Nanowerk News) Physicists have discovered a much faster approach to create a pattern of spins in a magnet. This ‘shortcut’ opens a new chapter in topology research. Interestingly, this discovery also offers an additional method to achieve more efficient magnetic data storage. The research is published in Nature Materials (“Observation of fluctuation-mediated picosecond nucleation of a topological phase”).
Useful for data storage: skyrmions
