Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


We construct skyrmion textures in a synthetic spin-1/2 dimension using nonlinear photonic crystals, giving rise to artificial gauge fields: a magnetic field, mimicking the topological Hall effect, and an electric field unique to our system.
