  journal={Physical Review B},
The zero temperature phase diagram of the mono-axial chiral helimagnet in the magnetic field plane formed by the components parallel and perpendicular to the helical axis is thoroughly analyzed. The nature of the transition to the commensurate state depends on the angle between the field and the helical axis. For field directions close to the directions parallel or perpendicular to the helical axis the transition is continuous, while for intermediate angles the transition is discontinuous and…

Instabilities in monoaxial chiral magnets under a tilted magnetic field

We thoroughly study the zero temperature properties of a monoaxial chiral spin system under the tilted magnetic field. The magnetic phase diagram includes two kinds of continuous phase transition and

Chiral solitons in monoaxial chiral magnets in tilted magnetic field

We show that the stability (existence/absence) and interaction (repulsion/attraction) of chiral solitons in monoaxial chiral magnets can be varied by tilting the direction of magnetic field. We,

Dynamics of chiral solitons driven by polarized currents in monoaxial helimagnets

It is shown here that chiral solitons in monoaxial helimagnets, characterized by a uniaxial Dzyaloshinskii–Moriya interaction, can be stabilized with external magnetic fields.

New magnetic intermediate state, “B-phase,” in the cubic chiral magnet MnSi

It is well known that the archetype chiral magnet MnSi stabilizes a skyrmion lattice, termed “A-phase,” in a narrow temperature range in the vicinity of the paramagnetic boundary around Tc ∼ 29 K and

Soliton locking phenomenon over finite magnetic field region in the monoaxial chiral magnet CrNb 3 S 6

Previous magnetic measurements for the chiral magnet CrNb3S6 have shown that the soliton penetration and soliton dissipation in the chiral soliton lattice state strongly depend on the crystal's size

Response of the chiral soliton lattice to spin-polarized currents

Spin polarized currents originate a spin-transfer torque that enables the manipulation of magnetic textures. Here we theoretically study the effect of a spin-polarized current on the magnetic texture

Annihilation and Control of Chiral Domain Walls with Magnetic Fields

This work presents the first evidence for soliton/soliton andsoliton/antisoliton domain walls in the hexagonal chiral magnet Mn1/3NbS2 that respond asymmetrically to magnetic fields and exhibit pair-annihilation.

Neutron Scattering in Magnetism: Fundamentals and Examples

In this chapter, an up-to-date survey of theoretical concepts and experimental results in the field of the neutron scattering techniques applied to magnetism, and their relevance to experiments in

The Magneto‐Transport Properties of Cr1/3TaS2 with Chiral Magnetic Solitons

Cr1/3TaS2—a candidate of chiral magnet—has been reported as a trivial ferromagnetic material. In contrast, the Cr1/3TaS2 single crystals exhibit a chiral helimagnetic (CHM) transition near 140 K. The
