Applying a magnetic field in the hexagonal plane of $\mathrm{Y}{\mathrm{Mn}}_{6}{\mathrm{Sn}}_{6}$ leads to a complex magnetic phase diagram of commensurate and incommensurate phases, one of which coexists with the topological Hall effect (THE) generated by a unique fluctuation-driven mechanism. Using unpolarized neutron diffraction, we report on the solved magnetic structure for two previously identified, but unknown, commensurate phases. These include a low-temperature, high-field fanlike… Expand

Near-room-temperature giant topological Hall effect in antiferromagnetic kagome metal YMn6Sn6
The kagome lattice, consisting of interconnected triangles and hexagons uniquely, is an excellent model system for study frustrated magnetism, electronic correlation and topological electronicExpand
Competing magnetic phases and fluctuation-driven scalar spin chirality in the kagome metal YMn6Sn6.
This work identifies a number of nontrivial magnetic phases, explains their microscopic nature, and demonstrates that one of them hosts a large topological Hall effect (THE), and proposes a previously unidentified fluctuation-driven mechanism, which leads to the THE at elevated temperatures. Expand
Multiply periodic states and isolated skyrmions in an anisotropic frustrated magnet
The phase diagram of an anisotropic frustrated magnet which contains five different multiply periodic states including the skyrmion crystal is studied to show that skyrMion materials with rich physical properties can be found among frustrated magnets. Expand

Skyrmion lattice with a giant topological Hall effect in a frustrated triangular-lattice magnet
A giant topological Hall response is observed, indicating a field-induced skyrmion phase, which is further corroborated by the observation of in-plane spin modulation probed by resonant x-ray scattering, and may lead to further discoveries of emergent electrodynamics in magnetically frustrated centrosymmetric materials.
