Recently, there has been an increased interest in the application of machine learning (ML) techniques to a variety of problems in condensed matter physics. In this regard, of particular significance is the characterization of simple and complex phases of matter. Here, we use a ML approach to construct the full phase diagram of a well known spin model combining ferromagnetic exchange and Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya (DM) interactions where topological phases emerge. At low temperatures, the system is…

Identifying (anti-)skyrmions while they form
The CNN can significantly speed up the phase diagram calculations by predicting the final phase before the spin-lattice Monte Carlo sampling has converged, and is shown to generate phase diagrams with signi-cantly shorter simulation times.


Determination of the Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction using pattern recognition and machine learning
It is shown that machine learning can be used to extract material parameters from a single image obtained in experiments and independently determine the magnetic anisotropy distribution, demonstrating the potential of pattern recognition.
Antiferromagnetic half-skyrmions and bimerons at room temperature.
A family of topological antiferromagnetic spin textures in α-Fe2O3-an Earth-abundant oxide insulator-capped with a platinum overlayer are realized, which have characteristic sizes of the order of 100 nanometres and can be chemically controlled via precise tuning of the exchange and anisotropy, with pathways through which further scaling may be achieved.
Imaging the coupling between itinerant electrons and localised moments in the centrosymmetric skyrmion magnet GdRu2Si2
SI-STM observations of GdRu2Si2 reveal patterns in the local density of states that indeed vary with the underlying magnetic structures, and these patterns are qualitatively reproduced by model calculations which assume exchange coupling between itinerant electrons and localised moments.
Fractional antiferromagnetic skyrmion lattice induced by anisotropic couplings
This work demonstrates that the theoretically proposed antiferromagnetic skyrmions can be stabilized in real materials and represents an important step towards their implementation in spintronic devices.
Room-temperature stabilization of antiferromagnetic skyrmions in synthetic antiferromagnets
It is demonstrated that room-temperature antiferromagnetic skyrmions can be stabilized in synthetic antiferromaagnets (SAFs), in which perpendicular magnetic anisotropy, antiferromeagnetic coupling and chiral order can be adjusted concurrently.
