Using disorder to find new magnetic transition pathways

A team of researchers at the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) have found a new tunable pathway to manipulate nanoscale magnetic structures known as skyrmions.

Their results advance efforts to access different configurations of these structures and increase their stability for magnetic memory applications, such as using these structures as new types of bits in classical or quantum computers.
