Recently discovered skyrmions is an example of a topological phase that manifest in magnetic systems as a hexagonal lattice of spin vortices. Due to topological protection, skyrmions can be moved coherently over macroscopic distances with low currents compared to domain wall motion, and is therefore a potential candidate for low power storage and logic applications.
