Skyrmion racetrack memory has a lot of potential in future non-volatile solid state devices. By application of current in such devices, both spin-orbit torque and spin-transfer torques are proven to be useful to nucleate and propagate skyrmions. However, the current applied during nucleation of successive skyrmions may have unwanted perturbation viz. Joule heating and the skyrmion Hall effect, on the propagation of previously generated skyrmions. Therefore, new methodology is desired to decouple the generation and propagation of skyrmions. Here, we present a novel route via micromagnetic simulations for generation of skyrmions from triangular antidot structure in a ferromagnetic nanotrack using local Oersted field. Antidots are holes in a magnetic nanoelement. Multiple skyrmions can be simultaneously generated by incorporating a greater number of antidots. Controlled skyrmion injection can be achieved by tuning the separation between the antidots that are placed at either end of the nanotrack. Here, we propose a novel design to realise skyrmionic racetrcak memory, where one can individually generate and manipulate the skyrmions within the nanotrack. © 2020 IOP Publishing Ltd.
