A shape-engineered trilayer ferromagnetic/non-magnetic/ferromagnetic nanostructure is lithographically fabricated to support four stable flux-closure domain configurations at remanence. Quantitative phase measurements using electron holography reveal the detailed magnetization reversal process and demonstrate how four domain states with distinct vortex chirality combinations can be controllably achieved by systematic manipulation of the applied magnetic field (see image).
