Scanning Force Microscopy Investigations of Skyrmions

In the past decade, a lot of interest was spurred by discoveries of vortex-like magnetic states, so-called skyrmions, in a variety of materials characterized by the anisotropic Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya (DM) interaction. Originally introduced in the context of pion fields, the expression skyrmion today is used in a more general sense as a term for a mathematical construct, that describes a topologically stabilized, particle-like object. The topological nature of the skyrmions gives rise to new and exciting physics, such as the so-called topological protection, i.e. an increased stability against the superparamagnetic effect, as well as the topological Hall-effect, or the Skyrmion Hall-effect. Real-space imaging of these objects, especially on single crystals, is readily achieved using magnetic force microscopy. We review our scanning force microscopy investigations of skyrmions in direction bulk-DMI single crystal materials, such as FexCo(1-x)Si (x = 0:5), GaV4S8 and Cu2OSeO3 and report on recent findings.
