Magnetic skyrmions are nanoscale twisted spin textures with a topology equivalent to the unit sphere. Skyrmions exhibit fascinating quasi-particle physics, including skyrmion gyration [1], inertia [1], the skyrmion Hall effect [2], topological damping [3], sub-ns switching [4], and ultra-fast motion [5]. They are also promising candidates for several data storage and data processing technologies. In this context, fast and energy efficient operation is key. In this talk I will give a brief overview of our latest results of on skyrmion displacement by nanosecond spin-orbit torque current pulses and ultrafast light pulses. The main part of the talk will focus on the physics and speed of optically induced topological switching (skyrmion nucleation) and how this is different from classical bubble behavior. These results will be discussed from a theoretical and experimental perspective.
