Scientists divide magnetic vortices into collectivists and individualists

In manganese monosilicide, microscopic magnetic vortices - skyrmions - may behave as 'collectivists' or 'individuals', i.e. they are able to create a single structure, or they can also split up individually. Studying the behaviour of skyrmions will help to create unique quantum devices based on new physical principles.
