Skyrmions for Advanced Magnetic Memory and Logic: Device Modeling
Book - Dissertation
The current thesis focuses on studying magnetic configurations called skyrmions. These can be regarded as configurations of spins that are topologically protected and have a chiral, whirling configuration. Their small size and robustness to defects, qualifies them as potential candidates for next-generation spintronic devices. Such devices can implement memory and/or logic functions. The aim of the PhD is to study the skyrmion structures and also introduce conceptual device models for skyrmion-based devices.
