Antiferromagnetic (AFM) skyrmions are envisioned as ideal topological magnetic bits in future information technologies. In contrast to ferromagnetic (FM) skyrmions, they are immune to the skyrmion Hall effect, might offer potential terahertz dynamics [1] while being insensitive to external magnetic. Although observed in synthetic AFM structures [2], their realization in non-synthetic AFM films has been elusive. Here[3], we unveil their presence in a row-wise AFM Cr film deposited on PdFe bilayer grown on fcc Ir(111) surface. Using first-principles, we demonstrate the emergence of single and catenated AFM skyrmions, which can coexist with the rich inhomogeneous exchange field, including that of FM skyrmions, hosted by PdFe. Besides the identification of an ideal platform of materials for intrinsic AFM skyrmions, we anticipate the uncovered solitons to be promising building blocks in AFM spintronics. -Work funded by (BMBF-01DH16027) [1] Gomonay et al., Nat.
