Magnetic Vortex (image) Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf Share Print E-Mail Caption The center of a magnetic vortex emits spin waves with very short wavelengths in the presence of high-frequency alternating magnetic fields. Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf have hereby provided proof of a mechanism which has great potential for future applications in data processing.
