PhD topic: Skyrmion dynamics in ultrathin films

Scientific project

Chiral magnetic interactions can appear in systems that lack inversion symmetry. In ultrathin ferromagnetic films on heavy-metal substrates, such interactions can lead to a variety of interesting spin configurations such as chiral domain walls and skyrmions. These objects, which are examples of topological solitons, have solicited much interest recently due to their potential for providing new avenues for low-power spintronic devices.
