Our recent theoretical paper on “Tunable terahertz oscillation arising from Bloch-point dynamics in chiral magnets” has now been published at Physical Review Research. This work arose from a collaboration between the University of Manchester(NEST group, Skyrmionics group, and Theoretical physics group) with the ETH Zürich (Metal Physics and Technology group). It reveals that the formation/annihilation of skyrmions will give rise to an emergent electric field with the frequency in the THz regime. The electric signal is due to the ultra-fast Bloch-point propagation, and both the amplitude and frequency can be tuned by the manipulation of Bloch-point dynamics. Our studies provide a concept of directly exploiting topological singularities which may be relevant for THz skyrmion-based electronic devices …

(Abstract) Magnetic skyrmions have attracted considerable interest, especially after their recent experimental demonstration at room temperature in multilayers. The robustness, nanoscale size and non-volatility of skyrmions have triggered a substantial amount of research on skyrmion-based low-power, ultra-dense nanocomputing and neuromorphic systems such as artificial synapses. Room-temperature operation is required to integrate skyrmionic synapses in practical future devices. Here, we numerically propose a nanoscale skyrmionic synapse composed of magnetic multilayers that …

I was really excited to attend the British-German WE-Heraeus-Seminar held in Physikzentrum Bad Honnef, Germany (1st - 5th Dec., 2019). The topic this year is „Skyrmions in Magnetic Materials“.

In the poster session, I was honored to present our recent work: „Tuneable Bloch-point dynamics during switching of skyrmions and antiskyrmions in chiral magnets” (manuscript available on arXiv), and I also won the best poster prize!

Really excited to participate the 12th International Symposium on Hysteresis Modeling and Micromagnetics (HMM2019) in Crete, Greece (19th-22nd May, 2019). I presented a talk in the first session “Magnetic Solitons I”, with the title “Controllable THz Bloch-point propagation in the switching process of magnetic skyrmions“. I also presented a poster from our recently published work Collective antiskyrmion-mediated phase transition and defect-induced melting in chiral magnetic films.

(Abstract) Magnetic phase transitions are a manifestation of competing interactions whose behavior is critically modified by defects and becomes even more complex when topological constraints are involved. In particular, the investigation of skyrmions and skyrmion lattices offers insight into fundamental processes of topological-charge creation and annihilation upon changing the magnetic state. Nonetheless …

(Abstract) In resistive random access memories, modeling conductive filament growing dynamics is important to understand the switching mechanism and variability. In this paper, a universal Monte Carlo simulator is developed based on a cell switching model and a tunneling-based transport model. Driven by external electric field …

(Abstract) Reversible chemical and structural changes induced by ionic motion and reaction in response to electrical stimuli leads to resistive switching effects in metal-insulator-metal structures. Filamentary switching based on the formation and rupture of nanoscale conductive filament has been applied in …
