Skyrmion Workshop – Program

Skyrmions are quasi-particle magnetization configurations characterized by fascinating topological properties and a relatively easy electrical manipulation via spin-polarized currents which promise unrivalled performances for a new generation of low-power devices. Since the initial theoretical predictions, a number of experimental achievements have been done in the last few years, which have led skyrmions to be observed in a variety of materials, including ferromagnets, synthetic antiferromagnets and ferrimagnets. However, up to date, the only reliable and successfully implemented skyrmions use is the reshuffler device, which ensures the signal decorrelation required in probabilistic computing. Therefore, further experimental advancements are still needed to definitively build a real skyrmion-based technology.
