We investigate the spin rotational structure of magnetic skyrmions in a tetragonal polar magnet VOSe$_2$O$_5$ via polarized small-angle neutron scattering (SANS). Spin polarization analysis of the scattered neutrons reveals the cycloidal spin modulation in all the incommensurate phases at zero and non-zero magnetic field along the $c$ axis, providing unambiguous evidence for Neel-type skyrmions in this system. In the vicinity of the triangular skyrmion-lattice phase, extensive SANS measurements…
