Magnetic Skyrmions: From Fundamental Physics to Topological Electronics

In Switzerland the National Science Foundation recently funded a network on Nano-Skyrmionics [https://skyrmions.epfl.ch] joining scientists from various institutions. Here, we provide a status report on selected forefront aspects of the research field. This includes identifying fundamentally new topological magnetization configurations, the process-es of skyrmion nucleation, manipulation, annihilation and detection with a view to their application as parts of memory devices, and their potential integration in broad-band spin dynamic and logic devices.
