Skyrmion-(Anti)Vortex Coupling in a Chiral Magnet-Superconductor Heterostructure:

Writing in Physical Review Letters, our group realises a long-standing ambition to couple spin topology in chiral magnets with flux topology in superconductors.  This advance will facilitate studies of vortex dynamics in unprecedentedly complex environments, and furthermore provides a platform from which to explore applications in topological quantum computation.  

Our work has also been highlighted as a Viewpoint in Physics magazine.

We are grateful to our colleagues in Antwerp, the Technion and Geneva for this fruitful collaboration.
