Scanning Probe Microscopy and Spectroscopy: Methods and Applications
Preface List of acronyms Introduction Part I. Experimental Methods and Theoretical Background of Scanning Probe Microscopy and Spectroscopy: 1. Scanning tunnelling microscopy 2. Scanning forceExpand
Noncontact Atomic Force Microscopy: Volume 3
Since the original publication of Noncontact Atomic Force Microscopy in 2002, the noncontact atomic force microscope (NC-AFM) has achieved remarkable progress. This second treatment deals with theExpand
Spontaneous atomic-scale magnetic skyrmion lattice in two dimensions
Skyrmions are topologically protected field configurations with particle-like properties that play an important role in various fields of science. Recently, skyrmions have been observed to beExpand
Writing and Deleting Single Magnetic Skyrmions
This work reports on an ultrathin magnetic film in which individual skyrmions can be written and deleted in a controlled fashion with local spin-polarized currents from a scanning tunneling microscope, demonstrating the feasibility of using spin- polarized tunnel currents for the controlled manipulation of individual sk Kyrmions.

Nanoscale magnetic skyrmions in metallic films and multilayers: a new twist for spintronics
Magnetic skyrmions are chiral quasiparticles that show promise for the transportation and storage of information. On a fundamental level, skyrmions are model systems for topologically protected spinExpand
Current-Driven Spin Dynamics of Artificially Constructed Quantum Magnets
The temperature-dependent dynamical response of artificially constructed magnets, composed of a few exchange-coupled atomic spins adsorbed on a metallic substrate, to spin-polarized currents driven and read out by a magnetic scanning tunneling microscope tip is characterized. Expand
Field-dependent size and shape of single magnetic Skyrmions.
The atomic-scale spin structure of individual isolated Skyrmions in an ultrathin film is investigated in real space by spin-polarized scanning tunneling microscopy and an analytical expression is proposed and applied to connect the experimental data to the original theoretical model describing chiral SkyrMions.

The properties of isolated chiral skyrmions in thin magnetic films
Axisymmetric solitonic states (chiral skyrmions) have been predicted theoretically more than two decades ago. However, until recently they have been observed in a form of skyrmionic condensatesExpand
