Chiral Ferrimagnetism in Amorphous Thin Films

Scientific Achievement

Experimental evidence of chiral ferrimagnetism in amorphous Gd-Co films

Significance and Impact

The work paves the way towards a generalized understanding of (interfacial) vector spin exchange-driven chirality selection in complex multi-component systems, relevant to novel concepts of spintronics.
