Shape transformations in flexible magnetic rings

The development of motility mechanisms controllable on the sub-micron length scale is crucial for both nanorobotics and shapeable magnetoelectronics. We showcase that the nanoscale shape deformation of a flexible magnet can be controlled by its magnetic attributes. Namely, we consider a problem of coupling the geometrical and magnetic degrees of…

Chiral Skyrmion and Skyrmionium States Engineered by the Gradient of Curvature

Curvilinear nanomagnets can support magnetic skyrmions stabilized at a local curvature without any intrinsic chiral interactions. Here, we propose an alternative mechanism to stabilize chiral Néel skyrmion states relying on the gradient of curvature. We illustrate our approach with an example of a magnetic thin film with perpendicular magnetic anisotropy…
