A Representation of Artificial Spin Ice for Evolutionary Search
MetadataShow full item record
Arrangements of nanomagnets known as artificial spin ices show great potential for use in unconventional computation. The majority of exploratory work done in this area considers just a small handful of well studied geometries (nanomagnetic arrangements), and uses them as if they were a black box. Here we detail a novel representation of artificial spin ice geometries, which lends itself to the tuning and evolutionary search of geometries. Using our representation we present geometries tuned to exhibit a desired computational or meta-material property. This is the first example of such a search performed on artificial spin ice.
