Using multiple scattering theory, we show that the generally accepted expression of transverse resistivity in magnetic systems that host skyrmions, given by the linear superposition of the ordinary, the anomalous, and the topological Hall effect, is incomplete and must be amended by an additional term, the "noncollinear" Hall effect (NHE). Its angular form is determined by the magnetic texture, the spin-orbit field of the electrons, and the underlying crystal structure, allowing us to…

Fermi-Surface Origin of Skyrmion Lattices in Centrosymmetric Rare-Earth Intermetallics.
We show from first principles that barrel-shaped structures within the Fermi surface of the centrosymmetric intermetallic compounds GdRu_{2}Si_{2} and Gd_{2}PdSi_{3} give rise to Fermi surface
Giant topological and planar Hall effect in Cr1/3NbS2
Cr1/3NbS2 is a transition metal dichalcogenide that has been of significant interest due to its ability to host a magnetic chiral soliton lattice. Conventional and planar Hall measurements provide
Spin-orbit enabled all-electrical readout of chiral spin-textures
Chirality and topology are intimately related fundamental concepts, which are heavily explored to establish spin-textures as potential magnetic bits in information technology. However, this ambition

A weak perpendicular magnetic field, B, breaks the chiral symmetry of each valley in the electron spectrum of graphene, preserving the overall chiral symmetry in the Brillouin zone. We explore the

A fundamental property of particles and antiparticles, such as electrons and positrons, is their ability to annihilate one another. Similar behavior is predicted for magnetic

We study the high frequency Hall conductivity in a two-dimensional (2D) model of conduction electrons coupled to a background magnetic skyrmion texture via an effective Hund’s coupling term. For an

A nontrivial crossover in topological Hall effect regimes
It is traced how the topological charge Hall effect transforms into the spin Hall effect upon varying the exchange interaction strength or the skyrmion size, accompanied by an oscillating behavior of both charge and spin Hall currents.
Topological Hall effect and Berry phase in magnetic nanostructures.
The anomalous Hall effect in a two-dimensional electron gas subject to a spatially varying magnetization is discussed and an experiment with a structure containing 2D electrons or holes of diluted magnetic semiconductor subject to the stray field of a lattice of magnetic nanocylinders is proposed.
Topological Hall Effect from Strong to Weak Coupling
The topological Hall effect (THE) of electrons coupled to a noncoplanar spin texture has been studied so far for the strong- and weak-coupling regimes separately; the former in terms of the Berry
Large topological Hall effect in a short-period helimagnet MnGe.
From the neutron diffraction study, it is anticipated that a relatively short-period (3-6 nm) noncoplanar spin structure is stabilized from the proper screw state in a magnetic field to produce the largest topological Hall response among the B20-type (FeSi-type) chiral magnets.
The family of topological Hall effects for electrons in skyrmion crystals
Abstract Hall effects of electrons can be produced by an external magnetic field, spin–orbit coupling or a topologically non-trivial spin texture. The topological Hall effect (THE) – caused by the

Inelastic scattering off magnetic impurities in a spin-chiral two-dimensional electron gas, e.g., the Rashba system, is shown to generate topological changes in the spin texture of the electron waves

In solid-state materials with strong relativistic spin-orbit coupling, charge currents generate transverse spin currents. The associated spin Hall and inverse spin Hall effects distinguish between
Magnetic adatom induced Skyrmion-like spin texture in surface electron waves.
It is demonstrated that, if magnetic, one single adatom is enough to visualize the presence of the Rashba effect in terms of an induced spin magnetization of the surrounding electrons exhibiting a twisted spin texture described as superposition of two Skyrmionic waves of opposite chirality.
Chirality-driven orbital magnetic moments as a new probe for topological magnetic structures
The orbital magnetism of skyrmions is studied and it is demonstrated that the contribution driven by the emergent magnetic field is topological, which means that the topological contribution to the orbital moment does not change under continuous deformations of the magnetic structure.
