Three-dimensional structure of skyrmions becomes visible for the first time

An international team of researchers has successfully tackled the challenge of making the three-dimensional structure of skyrmions visible. The scientists are from the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Stuttgart, the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing, the Songshan Lake Materials Laboratory in Guangdong, the University of Oxford in Great Britain, the University of Messina, and the Polytechnic in Bari, Italy. Together, they were able to map the three-dimensional structure of Skyrmions for the first time. On February 8, 2019, the joint project entitled "Anatomy of Skyrmionic Textures in Magnetic Multilayers" was published in the scientific journal Advanced Materials.
