Skyrmion Dynamics in Thin Films with Perpendicular Magnetic Anisotropy
MetadataShow full item record
In this thesis we consider dynamics of skyrmions driven by the Spin Hall effect, in particular in finite systems. We look at the interaction of a skyrmion with the boundary of the system. We find that the magnetization at the edge is tilted, which is expected to lead to a repulsive potential that tends to push the skyrmions away from the edge.
