Topological Melting of the Metastable Skyrmion Lattice in the Chiral Magnet Co9Zn9Mn2

In a β‐Mn‐type chiral magnet Co9Zn9Mn2, it is demonstrated that the magnetic field‐driven collapse of a room temperature metastable topological skyrmion crystal (SkX) passes through a regime

Do Images of Biskyrmions Show Type‐II Bubbles?

The intense research effort investigating magnetic skyrmions and their applications for spintronics has yielded reports of more exotic objects including the biskyrmion, which consists of a bound pair

Static and dynamic properties of magnetic Skyrmions in engineered multilayer films

Magnetic textures known as skyrmions promise new breakthroughs in memory, logic, and neuromorphic applications. Skyrmions have been found in a variety of material systems, yet there existed no

Defect-Induced Magnetic Skyrmion in a Two-Dimensional Chromium Triiodide Monolayer

This work demonstrates that spin-canted solutions can be induced into monolayer chromium iodide by select substitution of iodide atoms with isovalent impurities, and lays out the foundation for investigating the field- and geometric-dependent magnetic properties in similar two-dimensional materials.

Observation of room-temperature polar skyrmions

N nanometre-scale polar-skyrmion bubbles are the electric analogues of magnetic skyrmions, and could contribute to the advancement of ferroelectrics towards functionalities incorporating emergent chirality and electrically controllable negative capacitance.

Experimental observation of third-order effect in magnetic small-angle neutron scattering

A recent theory [Metlov and Michels, Phys. Rev. B 91, 054404 (2015)] predicts a qualitative effect in the magnetic small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) cross section of statistically isotropic



Topological properties and dynamics of magnetic skyrmions.

From this description, potential applications of skyrmions as information carriers in magnetic information storage and processing devices are envisaged.

Real-space observation of a two-dimensional skyrmion crystal

Real-space imaging of a two-dimensional skyrmion lattice in a thin film of Fe0.5Co 0.5Si using Lorentz transmission electron microscopy reveals a controlled nanometre-scale spin topology, which may be useful in observing unconventional magneto-transport effects.

Topological constraints on positions of magnetic solitons in multiply connected planar magnetic nanoelements

Here we consider an interplay between the topology of the magnetization texture (which is a topological soliton, or Skyrmion) in a planar magnetic nano-element and the topology of the element itself

Skyrmion Lattice in a Chiral Magnet

This study experimentally establishes magnetic materials lacking inversion symmetry as an arena for new forms of crystalline order composed of topologically stable spin states in the chiral itinerant-electron magnet MnSi.
