The profile of chiral skyrmions of large radius


Journal Article

We study the profile of an axially symmetric magnetic skyrmion in a ferromagnet with the Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction (DMI). We give exact formulas for the solution of the Landau-Lifshitz equation in the asymptotic limit that the dimensionless DMI parameter approaches a critical value ε→ε0 and the skyrmion radius becomes large and diverges to infinity. We give the profile field at the skyrmion core, the far field and the field of the skyrmion domain wall. An asymptotic formula for the skyrmion radius as a function of the DMI constant is obtained.
