Researchers achieve breakthrough in silicon-compatible magnetic whirls

February 21, 2024

Dr Jani said: ‘Silicon-based computing is much too energy-inefficient for the next generation of computing applications such as full-scale AI and autonomous devices. Finally, the free-standing hematite membrane was transferred onto silicon and several other desirable platforms. This method revealed that the free-standing layers are able to host a robust family of magnetic whirls. ‘One of our most exciting discoveries was the extreme flexibility of our hematite membranes,’ continues Dr Jani. We exploited this newfound flexibility to design magnetic whirls in three dimensions, something that was previously not possible.
