Scattering of high-energy magnons from a magnetic skyrmion — •Sarah Schroeter and Markus Garst — Institut für Theoretische Physik, Universität zu Köln, Zülpicher Str. 77, 50937 Köln, Germany
The skyrmion is a topologically stable soliton solution in chiral magnets and corresponds to a large-amplitude excitation of the field-polarized ground state. We consider the fluctuation spectrum around such a soliton with particular focus on the scattering of high-energy magnons. The topological winding number of the skyrmion results in a finite Aharanov-Bohm flux density in the scattering potential that leads to skew and rainbow scattering of magnons . We consider the differential cross section and the magnon pressure on the skyrmion within a semiclassical approximation and derive their high-energy asymptotics.
