New Trends in Chiral Magnetism Summer School

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 cycloids. The field becomes even richer after the realization of individual skyrmions in multilayers with broken inversion symmetry and skyrmions lattices in polar magnets. Chirality is the key to make different configurations distinguishable and promotes topological protections. Thereby chiral magnetic configurations are promising for next-generation data storage devices, and nanoscale magnonic logic. They allow for low-power consumption and improved stability.

Organization The summer school is organized in the framework of EuroTech Alliance, by a team of PhD students from École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL)Eindhoven University of Technology(TU/e)Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and Technical University of Munich (TUM).
