New magnetic multilayers for skyrmions

Skyrmions are magnetic quasiparticles in the form of nano-vortices of magnetisation, which are promising for the development of future generation magnetic memories. By exploiting the asymmetry of the Janus-type transition metal dichalcogenide layers, the calculations of the authors of the IRIG [collaboration] predict a new possibility of generating skyrmions and provide the conditions for their stability.
