Physicists from Juelich, Kiel and Hamburg identify an atomic-scale magnetic lattice of cycloidal vortices in a thin metal film Physicists at Forschungszentrum Jlich and the universities of Kiel and Hamburg are the first to discover a regular lattice of stable magnetic skyrmions "“ radial spiral structures made up of atomic-scale spins "“ on a surface instead of in bulk materials. Such tiny formations could one day form the basis of a new generation of smaller and more efficient...
