Creation of skyrmions and antiskyrmions by local heating.

Abstract

Heating a system usually increases entropy and destroys order. However, there are also cases where heating gives a system the energy to overcome the potential barrier to reach a state with a nontrivial ordered pattern. Whether heating can manipulate the topological nature of the system is especially important. Here, we theoretically show by microsimulation… (More)
