Спонтанна деформація гнучкої феромагнитної стрічки, що індукована взаємодією Дзялошинського-Морії

Here, we predict the effect of the spontaneous deformation of a flexible ferromagnetic ribbon induced by Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction (DMI). The geometrical form of the deformation is determined both by the type of DMI and by the equilibrium magnetization of the stripe. We found three different geometrical phases, namely, (i) the DNA-like deformation with the stripe central line in the form of a helix, (ii) the helicoid deformation with the straight central line, and (iii) cylindrical deformation. In the main approximation the magnitude of the DMI-induced deformation is determined by the ratio of the DMI constant and the Young’s modulus. It can be effectively controlled by the external magnetic field, which can be utilized for the nanorobotics applications. All analytical calculations are confirmed by numerical simulations.

Спінові збудження антиферомагнітного скірміону

We study spin eigenexcitation of a skyrmion in a collinear uniaxial antiferromagnet by means of analytical and numerical methods. We found a discrete spectrum of modes which are localized on the skyrmion. Based on a qualitatively different dependence of the mode eigenfrequencies on the skyrmion radius R0, we divided all localized modes into two branches. Modes of the low-frequency branch are analogous to the localized magnon modes of a ferromagnetic skyrmion, their frequencies scale as R02 for the large radius skyrmions, while the modes of the high-frequency branch have no direct ferromagnetic counterpart and do not demonstrate the significant radius dependence and are compactly situated at the magnon continuum. All the modes, except the radially symmetrical one, are doubly degenerated with respect to the sense of rotation around the skyrmion center: clockwise or counterclockwise. An out-of-plane magnetic field removes the degeneracy (for all modes except translational), resulting in a frequency splitting, which for the small fields is linear in field. The possibility of excitation of the modes by means of the external ac magnetic fields is discussed. To explain our numerical results for the low-frequency modes, we introduce a string model for an antiferromagnetic domain wall representing boundary of the large radius skyrmion.

Індуковані кривиною магнонні кристали в нанодротах

A new type of magnonic crystals, curvature induced ones, is realized in ferromagnetic nanowires with periodically deformed shape. A magnon band structure of such crystal is fully determined by its curvature: the developed theory is well confirmed by simulations. An application to nanoscale spintronic devises with the geometrically tunable parameters is proposed, namely, to filter elements.
