07.02.2022 Joint publication about antiferromagnetic spintronics

A joint publication from the team of antiferromagnetic spintronics about domain walls driven by elastic defects has been published in Nature Communications.

They show that the domain structure in thin films of the antiferromagnet CuMnAs is dominated by elastic defects. These defects determine the location and orientation of 90° and 180° domain walls.The results show the impact of defects on the antiferromagnetic domain structure and provides a route to optimize the performance of devices.
