  • Neel-type magnetic skyrmions in multilayer films have recently attracted significant attention due to their stability at room temperature and low threshold for current-driven motion, offering the potential for the construction of high-speed and high-density spintronic devices. However, to date, research studies reported in the literature have rarely examined the effect of temperature on the formation and behavior of Neel-type skyrmions. Here, we investigate the effect of the temperature on the… CONTINUE READING
