Skyrmion nucleation using Ga+ irradiation?

PhD student Mark de Jong has just uploaded his most recent results on tuning the magnetic interaction by Ga+ irradiated Ir/Co/Pt multilayers. In this work we show that we tune the relevant magnetic properties locally. This will give rise to energy efficient Skyrmion nucleation due to a lowered energy barriers whilst maintaining their stability and […]

In-Situ MOKE & SEMPA a golden combination!

Dear All, PhD students Marielle Meijer and Mark de Jong have recently been working on getting our in-situ MOKE setup running. In this way we can measure in-situ MOKE loops on ultrathin magnetic layers (2 atoms thick) without capping! Hence, we can now directly measure hysteresis loops without breaking vacuum, allowing us to probe individual […]
