Magnetische Schwimmer und Skyrmionen
Magnetic skyrmions: Not the only ones of their class
Jülich, 28 June 2018 - Tiny magnetic vortex structures, so-called skyrmions, have been researched intensively for some time for future energy-efficient space-saving data storage devices. Scientists at Forschungszentrum Jülich have now discovered another class of particle-like magnetic object that could take the development of data storage devices a significant step forward. If skyrmions are used to encode the number "1", then the new objects could be used to encode the number "0".

moreSTEM - Momentum-resolved Scanning Transmission Electron Microscopy

In this imaging mode diffraction patterns are recorded at each raster position of a scanning electron beam in an electron microscope. The result is a unique multidimensional data set that allows for the simultaneous evaluation and combination of real- and momentum space information. Find out more on our site:
