In the presence of a magnetic field, the flow of charged particles in a conductor is deflected from the direction of the applied force, which gives rise to the ordinary Hall effect. Analogously, moving skyrmions with non-zero topological charges and finite fictitious magnetic fields exhibit the skyrmion Hall effect, which is detrimental for applications such as skyrmion racetrack memory. It was predicted that the skyrmion Hall effect vanishes for antiferromagnetic skyrmions because their… Expand
Formation and current-induced motion of synthetic antiferromagnetic skyrmion bubbles
TLDR
Additive Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction and spin-orbit torque of the tailored stack allow stable skyrmion bubbles at room temperature, significantly smaller threshold current density or higher speed for motion, and negligible skyrMion Hall effect, with a potential to be scaled down to nanometer dimensions.
