Spin vortex dynamics in a ferromagnetic superfluid (2020–2023)

Magnetic spin vortices are stable whirlpool-like objects that can spontaneously form when magnetic materials are rapidly cooled. This project aims to understand and manipulate spin vortices in a magnetic quantum fluid, one of the cleanest and most controllable magnetic systems. The significance is that spin vortices are potentially fundamental elements of future electronic technologies for advanced storage and logic. The expected outcomes are the ability to create spin vortices on demand, and the characterisation of their suitability for future applications. The benefit is an improved fundamental knowledge of spin vortices, and laying the groundwork for the use of magnetic structures in future spin-based electronics.
