BaMn9[VO4]6(OH)2, a novel candidate for the observation of a Skyrmion lattice — •Angela Möller1, Kewen Sun1, Vladimir Gnezdilov2,3, and Peter Lemmens31Department of Chemistry and TcSUH, University of Houston, United States — 2ILTPE NAS, Kharkov, Ukraine — 3IPKM, TU-BS, Braunschweig, Germany

The search for topologically stable vortex-like objects (Skyrmions) in insulating chiral magnets lead to their discovery in Cu2OSeO3 [1]. We will show that the combination of certain structural features, such as chirality and frustration might expedite the finding of new candidates of this rare class. A chiral paddle-wheel type of structure featuring geometric frustration has been reported for the metrically cubic title compound with ferrimagnetic, Tc=18 K, and dielectric anomalies [2]. Interestingly, Raman scattering shows magnetoelastic coupling of several phonons but no spontaneous symmetry reduction. This is considered a prerequisite for the existence of a Skyrmion lattice.
