New research to explore peer-to-peer ‘free trade’ in excess energy

The UK has seen an increase in the uptake of micro-generation, in which individuals or organizations install their own small scale, renewables-based energy generators...
Simulations of skyrmion bags in magnetic materials. Each point represents a direction of the magnet, with white upwards, black downwards and colours around a colour wheel. The bags consist of three vortex-like lumps, which are the skyrmions inside the bag.

Skyrmions could provide next generation data storage

Skyrmionics focuses on harnessing the properties of nanometer-sized structures in magnetic films called skyrmions. These spin on the surface of the magnet like tiny...
