26 September 2016 Four states magnetic dots: a design selection by micromagnetic modeling

In a context where sub-micrometric magnetic dots are foreseen to play an active role in various new breeds of electronics components such as magnetic memories, magnetic logics or bio-sensors, the use of micromagnetic simulations to optimize their shapes and spatial arrangement with respect to a chosen application has become unavoidable. Prior realizing experimentally magnetic dots presenting four stable magnetic states (4SMS), we performed a micromagnetic study to select a design providing not only four equivalent magnetic states in a single dot but also exhibiting mostly uniform magnetic states.
