Chiral Skyrmion and Skyrmionium States Engineered by the Gradient of Curvature

Curvilinear nanomagnets can support magnetic skyrmions stabilized at a local curvature without any intrinsic chiral interactions. Here, we propose an alternative mechanism to stabilize chiral Néel skyrmion states relying on the gradient of curvature. We illustrate our approach with an example of a magnetic thin film with perpendicular magnetic anisotropy…

Tracking Git commits info in LaTeX docs

Last time we wrote how to use Git + TeXStudio (especially with Overleaf) bundle to collaborate on papers and track changes. During the work it may be useful to show information about current commit/author/(time of change) directly in the document. We found a few ways to do it. The simplest…

Localization of magnon modes in a curved magnetic nanowire

Spin waves in magnetic nanowires can be bound by a local bending of the wire. The eigenfrequency of a truly local magnon mode is determined by the curvature: a general analytical expression is established for any infinitesimally weak localized curvature of the wire. The interaction of the local mode with…

Magnetization in narrow ribbons: curvature effects

A ribbon is a surface swept out by a line segment turning as it moves along a central curve. For narrow magnetic ribbons, for which the length of the line segment is much less than the length of the curve, the anisotropy induced by the magnetostatic interaction is biaxial, with…
