The effective redirection of spin waves and their local control are among the main challenges faced by the emergent field of magnon spintronics. To solve the problem Lara et al. introduce a breakthrough technology for communication and signal processing using spin waves localized at the edges of magnetic nanostructures. The concept of edge spin waves allows designing a broad range of nanoscale devices such as splitters, interferometers, or edge spin wave transistors with unprecedented characteristics and a potentially strong impact on information technologies.
