Skyrmions are expected to be a key component of the next-generation of spintronics: known as 'skyrmionics'. On the other hand, there is a well-established memory device encoded by a sequence of domain walls. Here we show a conversion is possible between a skyrmion and a domain-wall pair by connecting wide and narrow nanowires, enabling the information transmission between a skyrmion device and a domain-wall device. Our results will be the basis of a hybrid device made of skyrmions and domain… Expand
