Colloquium: Recent Advances on Magnetic Skyrmions

Physics Building

Tuesday November 14th, 2017 at 5:00 PM in 120 Engineering (Hammond Auditorium)

Magnetic skyrmions are small local spin configurations stabilized by the protection due to their topology. In most cases, they are induced by chiral interactions between atomic spins existing in non-centro-symmetric magnetic compounds or in thin films in which inversion symmetry is broken by the presence of an interface.
