3-D Magnetic Vortices (image) Helmholtz Association Caption Static, three-dimensional magnetic vortices are formed between two magnetic layers around a non-magnetic intermediate layer. These magnetic vortices stabilize the direction of magnetization in the center of the vortex core -- a prerequisite for stable vortex antennas for wireless data transmission.
