What is it about?

This perspective explores different aspects of one of the most crucial mechanisms in modern spintronics, namely spin-orbit torque. Spin-orbit torque can facilitate faster and more energy-efficient switching of magnetic moment with an electric current leading to more efficient magnetic memory. This perspective shows a deeper connection between spin-orbit torque and different transport properties with the inherent topological feature of the system in various complex magnetic systems.
