Universal feature of dynamics in skyrmion condensed phases
Controlling the transport of skyrmions and half-skyrmions observed in chiral magnets, molecular crystals, and liquid crystals is essential for designing functional materials. However, the dynamical properties of skyrmions in their condensed phases have not been elucidated theoretically. Recently, we have discovered anomalous diffusion and relaxation of half-skyrmions in chiral molecular crystals. Therefore, this research project aims to explore the dynamics of magnetic skyrmions in their condensed phases to reveal the universal structure of high-density skyrmions common to magnetic materials and molecular crystals.


When considering the motion of spatially localized quasiparticles such as skyrmions, we believe that knowledge of the anomalous diffusion and relaxation dynamics of soft particles, the focus of soft matter physics, is instructive. We aim to propose universal concepts that bridge disparate phenomena in various materials, including the dynamics of skyrmions in magnetic materials and half-skyrmions in molecular crystals.
