Curvilinear Magnetism: Fundamentals and Applications

Makarov, D.

There is one aspect, which is in common to the majority of fundamentally appealing and technologically relevant novel magnetic materials, namely their non-collinear magnetic textures like spin spirals, chiral domain walls or skyrmions [1]. These textures are typically driven by the Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction (DMI). Recently, curvature effects emerged as a novel mean to design chiral magnetic properties by relying on extrinsic parameters, e.g. geometry of thin films [2]. In particular, novel effects occur when the magnetization is modulated by curvature leading to new magnetization configurations and is implications on the spin dynamics due to topological constraints. Advances in this novel field solely rely on the understanding of the fundamentals behind the modifications of magnetic responses of 3D-curved magnetic thin films [3-5] and nanowires [6,7]. The lack of an inversion symmetry and the emergence of a curvature induced effective anisotropy and DMI are characteristic of curved surfaces, leading to curvature-driven magnetochiral effects and topologically induced magnetization patterning [8,9]. The application potential of 3D-shaped objects is currently being explored as mechanically reshapeable magnetic field sensorics [10] for flexible interactive electronics [11-13], magnetic field sensors [14-18], curvilinear magnetoelectrics for memory devices [19], spin-wave filters and high-speed racetrack memory devices [20]. To advance in this research field, novel theoretical methods and fabrication/characterization techniques [21-24]. The fundamentals as well as application relevant aspects of curvilinear nanomagnets will be covered in this presentation.
