Interfacial Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction and orbital magnetic moments of metallic multilayer films

Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction (DMI) at metallic multilayer interfaces of Co thin films and heavy-metals X (X=Ir, Pt) was investigated from first principles calculations that treat spin-spirals with the spin-orbit coupling. The results predict that the sign of the DMI parameters depends on the he...
