At that time, these spinning magnetic swirls that had been proposed over 60 years ago by British physicist Tony Skyrme —from whom the name derives—had suddenly become a potentially game changing magnetic data storage system. And what a change it represented: skyrmions are 10 times smaller than the magnetic regions used on traditional hard drives. Now a team of researchers from CNRS/Thales joint lab in Fran...
