Magnetic imaging of topological phenomena in ferroic materials — •Weida Wu — Department of Physics and Astronomy, Rutgers University, Piscataway, NJ, 08854 USA

Topology is a pervasive concept in condensed matter physics. Topological phenomena such as vortices, Skyrmions and chiral edge states are mesoscopic textures that are crucial for the physical properties and functionalities. Thus, it is imperative to directly visualize these mesoscopic phenomena. In this talk, I will present our recent discovery of alternating uncompensated magnetic moments at Z6 vortex domain walls in hexagonal manganites, which demonstrates the coupling between ferroelectric and antiferromagnetic orders. Furthermore, magnetoelectric response of the vortex domains were directly visualized by Magnetoelectric Force Microscopy (MeFM), a combination of MFM with in-situ modulating high electric fields. Our MeFM results reveal a giant enhancement of magnetoelectric response of a lattice mediated magnetoelectric effect near a spin-reorientation critical point.
