We use the continuum micromagnetic framework to derive the formulas for compact skyrmion lifetime due to thermal noise in ultrathin ferromagnetic films with relatively weak interfacial Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction. In the absence of a saddle point connecting the skyrmion solution to the ferromagnetic state, we interpret the skyrmion collapse event as "capture by an absorber" atmicroscale. This yields an explicit Arrhenius collapse ratewith both the barrier height and the prefactor as functions of all the material parameters, as well as the dynamical paths to collapse.

Abstract

We use the continuum micromagnetic framework to derive the formulas for compact skyrmion lifetime due to thermal noise in ultrathin ferromagnetic films with relatively weak interfacial Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction. In the absence of a saddle point connecting the skyrmion solution to the ferromagnetic state, we interpret the skyrmion collapse event as "capture by an absorber" atmicroscale. This yields an explicit Arrhenius collapse ratewith both the barrier height and the prefactor as functions of all the material parameters, as well as the dynamical paths to collapse.
