In magnetic hologram recording, a medium (a garnet based film) is magnetised in one direction; then the medium is irradiated with laser light an information-bearing beam (signal beam) and a reference beam; the resulting interference pattern is recorded in the form of the difference in magnetisation directions as a result of thermomagnetic recording.
Realisation of room temperature spin-orbit torque driven magnetisation switching in topological insulator-ferromagnet heterostructures has promising applications in low power consumption and high integration density memories and logic devices.
A magnetic domain wall forms in a magnetic wire and separates regions where the magnetisation points in opposite directions.
