Skyrmion confinement in ultrathin film nanostructures in the presence of Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction
We study the modification of micromagnetic configurations in nanostructures, due to the Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction (DMI), that appear at the interface of an ultrathin film. We show that thisExpand
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
Anatomy of Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya Interaction at Co/Pt Interfaces.
The main features and microscopic mechanisms of DMI in Co/Pt bilayers via first principles calculations are unveiled and it is found that the large DMI of the bilayers has a dominant contribution from the spins of the interfacial Co layer. Expand
Band Filling Control of the Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya Interaction in Weakly Ferromagnetic Insulators.
Very good quantitative agreement is found with first-principles electronic structure calculations, reproducing both sign and magnitude through the series, and a simplified "toy model" is proposed to explain the change in sign with 3d shell filling. Expand
Skyrmion Lattice in a Chiral Magnet
This study experimentally establishes magnetic materials lacking inversion symmetry as an arena for new forms of crystalline order composed of topologically stable spin states in the chiral itinerant-electron magnet MnSi. Expand
Topological properties and dynamics of magnetic skyrmions.
From this description, potential applications of skyrmions as information carriers in magnetic information storage and processing devices are envisaged. Expand
Topological Hall effect in the A phase of MnSi.
This work reports a distinct additional contribution to the Hall effect in the temperature and magnetic field range of the proposed Skyrmion lattice, where such a contribution is neither seen nor expected for a normal helical state. Expand
Doppler shift picture of the Dzyaloshinskii--Moriya interaction
We present a physical picture for the emergence of the Dzyaloshinskii–Moriya (DM) interaction based on the idea of the Doppler shift by an intrinsic spin current induced by spin–orbit interactionExpand
Hund's Rule-Driven Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya Interaction at 3d-5d Interfaces.
It is demonstrated that, besides the spin-orbit coupling (SOC) effect in inversion asymmetric noncollinear magnetic systems, the driving force is the 3d orbital occupations and their spin-flip mixing processes with thespin-orbit active 5d states control directly the sign and magnitude of the DMI.

Real-space observation of a two-dimensional skyrmion crystal
Real-space imaging of a two-dimensional skyrmion lattice in a thin film of Fe0.5Co 0.5Si using Lorentz transmission electron microscopy reveals a controlled nanometre-scale spin topology, which may be useful in observing unconventional magneto-transport effects. Expand
