Skyrmion Breathing Modes in Synthetic Ferri- and Antiferromagnets — •Martin Lonsky and Axel Hoffmann — Department of Materials Science and Engineering, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Urbana, IL 61801, United States of America
Magnetic multilayers that combine strong spin-orbit interaction with lacking inversion symmetry can give rise to the presence of topologically nontrivial spin textures, so-called magnetic skyrmions, at room temperature. Recent studies have indicated strongly enhanced propagation velocities of skyrmions in antiferromagnets and compensated ferrimagnets . At the same time, it is unclear how magnetic compensation may affect dynamic excitations of magnetic skyrmions, such as breathing modes which entail an oscillation of the skyrmion size at GHz frequencies . Here, we present micromagnetic simulations of these excitations in synthetic ferri- and antiferromagnets. The observed features in the calculated power spectra show a systematic dependence on the coupling strength between the individual magnetic layers and are related to pure breathing modes as well as to hybridizations of breathing and spin wave modes that are characteristic for the considered geometry. Based on these simulations, we then discuss the impact of these results for potential skyrmion sensing and other applications.
