Résumé :

Magnetic skyrmions are attracting a growing interest from both a fundamental and a technological point of view. A promising application concerns the racetrack memory, where skyrmions (moved by spin-transfer torque (STT) or spin-Hall effect (SHE)) can be used to carry the information bit, replacing domain walls [1,2,3]. Skyrmions are nucleated in out-of-plane materials, where the Dzyaloshinskii–Moriya interaction (DMI) arises: Bloch skyrmions are stabilized in the case of bulk DMI, whereas Néel skyrmions are obtained in the case interfacial DMI. Here, we’ll show that a skyrmion racetrack memory can be obtained in four scenarios, by combining the skyrmion type and the motion source [4]. In particular, the Néel skyrmion motion driven by the SHE (fig. 1a), exhibits a large velocity-current tunability, as well as a good robustness towards surface roughness and thermal fluctuations at room temperature. The last part of the seminary will show our recent advances in the design of skyrmion-based oscillators and microwave detectors.
