Controlling Skyrmions Magnetic skyrmions—tiny vortex patterns of spins—hold promise for information storage because of their robustness to perturbations. Skyrmions have been observed experimentally, but manipulating them individually remains a challenge. Romming et al. (p. 636; see the cover) used spin-polarized electrons generated by a scanning tunneling microscope to reversibly create and destroy skyrmions in a thin iron film covered by a layer of palladium. The energy of the tunneling… Expand
