Serendipity in the research field of magnetism

Scientists discover new light-matter interaction with which they can write nanometer-sized magnetic structures

A German-Chinese research team has discovered a new effect that for the first time enables the creation of extremely small magnetic structures, known as skyrmions, directly with an X-ray beam. The scientists have thus made it possible to write arbitrary magnetic patterns with the highest precision.
