Topological phases for magnons and electrons in the skyrmion lattice — •Joaquín Fernandez-Rossier — QuantaLab, International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL), Braga, Portugal

In this talk I will present two topological phases driven by a skyrmion lattice. First, I will discuss the electronic Quantum Anomalous Hall phase predicted to occur when graphene is placed on top of a triangular skyrmion lattice [1]. Second, I will show that the spin waves associated to a skyrmion lattice have a finite Berry curvature and a non-zero Chern number, forming thereby a phase topologically different from spin waves in conventional ground states [2]. The skyrmion lattice emerges spontaneously as a competition between ferromagnetic exchange, Dzyalonshinkii-Moriya interactions, Zeeman coupling and uniaxial anisotropy in a triangular lattice. I discuss the properties of the resulting topological spin-wave edge states, most notably their unidirectional propagation.
