The image is captured during the field-induced magnetic transition of a skyrmion lattice in theory. The colour code indicates the component of magnetisation perpendicular to the film surface. Increasing of the magnetic field forces skyrmion diameter to expand. Then the lattice inversion occurs involving the breaking of domain alls accompained with the emergence of transient […]

Congratulations on our new paper! ‘Tunable terahertz oscillation arising from Bloch-point dynamics in chiral magnets’

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 …

THz-oscillating electric signal from Bloch point dynamics

In this work, our considerations go beyond static skyrmions, and we theoretically show that the formation/annihilation of both skyrmions and antiskyrmions is enabled by the transient creation and propagation of topological singularities (magnetic monopole-like Bloch points) …

Magnetic switching of ideal/defective skyrmion lattices

We numerically show the reversal of skyrmion polarity via a field-induced first-order phase transition, accompained by a transient antiskyrmion state …
