Study of the structure and dynamics of magnetic skyrmions

Abstract:

Magnetic skyrmions (skyrmions hereafter) are recently discovered localized vortexlike magnetic structures, defined by their unit topological winding number. From this nontrivial topology, skyrmions inherit unusual physical properties. They have been shown to be particularly robust to deformation, and so they are often referred to as being “topologically protected”. In conductive materials, they appear to source electric and magnetic fields. When driven by an applied force, their topology p...
