Fundamental physics and applications of skyrmions: A review

Magnetic skyrmions are tiny magnetic swirls that hold great potential in innovative electronic devices owing to their desirable properties of long-term stability, small size, and highly efficient controllability by various external stimuli. In this recently published review, we address the fundamental physics of the static, global and local dynamic properties of skyrmions and provide an overview of recent advances in computational models that utilize these unique properties. A discussion on the challenges lying ahead is also provided.
