Chemical reactions at gas-solid interfaces are of great importance in many heterogeneous processes such as catalysis, corrosion, and material fabrication. In this talk, dynamics of several prototypical surface processes, including dissociative chemisorption, Eley-Rideal reactions, and desorption, are explored theoretically on metal surfaces. Classical trajectories either on analytical potential energy surfaces or with forces calculated on ...

Magnetic configurations with chiral properties have attracted enormous interest after the discovery of the magnetic skyrmions lattice in non-centrosymmetric bulk crystals. The asymmetric exchange interaction, Dzylonshinskii-Moriya interaction (DMI) that cooperates with symmetric exchange interaction, dipolar and Zeeman interactions, allows for further non-collinear spin structures beyond skyrmions, such as e.g. spin helices, conical states, and spin ...
