报告摘要:

(Part I) We show the emergence of second-order topological insulator in the dynamics of spin texture based metamaterials. Quantized Chern number and ZN Berry phase are proposed to completely characterize the nontrivial topology. By studying the collective gyration of magnetic vortices in a breathing honeycomb lattice, we derive the full phase diagram and show that the topological “zero-energy” corner mode is protected by a generalized chiral symmetry in the sexpartite lattice, leading to particular robustness against disorder and defects. Interestingly, we observe corner states at either obtuse-angled or acute-angled corners, depending on whether the lattice boundary has an armchair or zigzag shape. Full micromagnetic simulations confirm the theoretical predictions with good agreement. This finding opens up a promising route for realizing higher-order symmetry-protected corner states in magnetic systems and for finally achieving topological spintronic memory, imaging, and computing. (Part II) We theoretically investigate the twisted spin-wave generation and propagation in magnetic nanocylinders. The orbital angular momentum (OAM) nature of magnons is uncovered by showing that the spin-wave eigenmode is also the eigenstate of the OAM operator in the confined geometry. Inspired by optical tweezers, we predict an exotic “magnetic tweezer” effect by showing skyrmion gyrations under twisted magnons in exchange coupled nanocylinder|nanodisk heterostructure, as a practical demonstration of magnonic OAM to manipulate topological spin defects. Our study paves the way for the emerging magnetic manipulations by harnessing the OAM degree of freedom of magnons.
