Magnetic vortex

In manganese monosilicide (MnSi), microscopic magnetic vortices – skyrmions – may behave as “collectivists” or “individuals”, i.e. they are able to create a single structure, or they can also split up individually. These are the findings of scientists from MIPT and Prokhorov General Physics Institute of RAS. Studying the behaviour of skyrmions will help to create unique quantum devices based on new physical principles.
