This book provides a state-of-the art overview of a highly interesting emerging research field in solid state physics/nanomaterials science,  topological structures in ferroic materials. Topological structures in ferroic materials have received strongly increasing attention in the last few years. Such structures include domain walls, skyrmions and vortices, which can form in ferroelectric, magnetic, ferroelastic or multiferroic materials. These topological structures can have completely different properties from the bulk material they form in. They also can be controlled by external fields (electrical, magnetic, strain) or currents, which makes them interesting from a fundamental research point of view as well as for potential novel nanomaterials applications.
To provide a comprehensive overview, international leading researches in these fields contributed review-like chapters about their own work and the work of other researchers to provide a current view of this highly interesting topic.
Charged domain walls in ferroelectrics.- Multiferroic domain wall theory.- Modelling of domain wall properties in ferroelectrics.- Magnetic domain walls.- Magnetic topological spin structures in confined geometries.- Nucleation and propagation of kink solitons in antiferromagnetically coupled layers using the spin-flop transition.- Skyrmions in chiral magnets (experiment).- Skyrmions in chiral magnets (theory).- Ferroic vortex structures and ferroelastic domain walls.- Vortex and Vertex domains in ferroelectrics: statics and dynamics.
