Congratulations to Runze Chen who has had his paper “Skyrmionic Interconnect Device”, by R Chen, Y Li, V. F. Pavlidis, and C Moutafis, published in Physical Review Research. You can view the paper online here. In this work, an all-magnetic skyrmion-based interconnect device – the so far “missing component” in skyrmionics – is proposed. Sequences of information are encoded by skyrmionic quasi-particles with distinct topological charges in a single device, thereby inherently enabling signal multiplexing. This work underpins a significant paradigm shift from particle-based into topology-based information technologies.
