About the book
Skyrmions are generally known as nanoscale magnetic vortices, a type of quasiparticle that is driven by ultra-low electrical current. This skyrmion is a point-like region of reversed magnetization in a uniform magnet. The magnetic skyrmions found in magnetic materials exhibit spiral magnetism. Magnetic skyrmions are anticipated to allow for the existence of discrete magnetic states which are significantly more energetically stable than their single-domain counterparts. Magnetic skyrmions have important applications in microwave communication, logic computing technology in memory, and logic devices in terms of store information. Magnetic skyrmions within a film or nano track can be manipulated using spin currents or spin waves which can have more applications in data storage and spintronic devices and shows outstanding magnetic and transport properties. Magnetic skyrmions is an advanced and active research field which reveal fundamental physics, development for next-generation high-density efficient information devices, create and manipulate nanometer-size skyrmions in the device, develop compatible materials at room-temperature by all-electrical means.
This book of magnetic skyrmions will attract an interdisciplinary audience from condensed matter physics, chemistry, nanotechnology, engineering, and materials science. There are still several challenges such as the interaction of skyrmions with other magnetic textures, the particle-wave duality of skyrmions, skyrmion lattice phase transitions, and the use of skyrmion lattices as magnonic crystals are needed to address for designing fully functional and competitive skyrmion devices. The chapter of the book will address all the scientific advances and interesting facts of skyrmion which can create and access magnetic skyrmions under ambient room-temperature conditions for next-generation devices.
