Nanoscale Room Temperature Chiral Skyrmions

Excited to see our nanoscale room temperature (R.T.) sub-100nm chiral skyrmions now available in print in the May 2016 issue at Nature Nanotechnology: Nat. Nanotech. 11, 444–448 (2016). The paper describes the discovery of room temperature individual nanoscale chiral skyrmions by means of high resolution X-ray imaging. This observation can serve as a basis for the development of skyrmion-based memory and logic devices and enable further fundamental studies on the very rich physics of skyrmions.
