) with a flux-closure magnetic ground state were investigated by micromagnetic simulations. The system was excited with an applied magnetic field, displacing the vortex core sufficiently far from its equilibrium position to result in a nonlinear relaxation upon removal of the field. We find that creation of edge topological defects leads to exchange explosions and periodic emission of short-wavelength spin waves emanating from these defects. The exchange explosions of the edge topological defects are investigated and explained in terms of vortex/antivortex creation and the formation of a Bloch point. This finding could prove useful to the development of nanoscale devices for periodic generation of high-frequency microwave radiation.
