Observation of the skyrmion sideface state in a chiral magnet

Abstract:

We identify a three-dimensional skyrmion sideface state in chiral magnets that consists of a thin layer of modulated surface spirals and an array of phase-locked skyrmion screws. Such chiral spin structures lead to a characteristic ‘X’-shaped magnetic diffraction pattern in resonant elastic x-ray scattering, reminiscent of Photo 51 of the DNA double helix diffraction. By measuring both thin plates and bulk Cu2OSeO3 crystals in the field-in-plane geometry, we unambiguously identified the modul...
