Research

We work on all kinds of magnetic phenomena. If you are looking for a common theme, it would probably be topological defects. Magnetic materials exhibit an astonishing variety of ordered phases and each has its own unique textures that are stable for topological reasons. Domain walls, kinks, vortices, and skyrmions to a large degree influence the properties of various magnetic states.

For a brief introduction to the group’s research, read the article¬†The Mysteries of Magnetism by science writer Tom Siegfried. And see below for the latest updates.
