One of the major topics in spintronics today is the study of chiral non-collinear spin textures of various topologies. Recently, a novel chiral spin texture, magnetic anti-skyrmion that has distinct topological features from that of Bloch and Néel skyrmions, was discovered in tetragonal inverse Heusler, Mn1.4Pt0.9Pd0.1Sn . Anti-skyrmions have boundaries (the in-plane magnetization region between magnetization pointing up and pointing down) that have a complex structure consisting of successive left hand Bloch, left hand Néel, right hand Bloch, and right hand Néel wall segments. This complex structure is a result of an anisotropic Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya exchange interaction that is set by the symmetry of the underlying lattice. Interestingly, magnetic anti-skyrmions are stable over a wide range of temperature, magnetic field and thickness of the lamella in which they are formed . In this presentation, I will discuss our recent in-situ Lorentz and magnetic force microscopic studies of nucleation, stabilization and size manipulation of anti-skyrmions in tetragonal inverse Heuslers.
