Swirling spin textures, such as helices and vortices, appear in chiral magnets, and these noncolinear and noncoplaner spin textures bring about characteristic resonance structures and quantum transports. Recently, a one-dimensional chiral magnet hosting a conical spin texture and a chiral soliton lattice (CSL) have attracted a lot of interest since resonance frequencies as well as a magnetic modulation period can be flexibly controlled by an external magnetic field [1,2]. However, the dynamical properties of these spin textures associated with the oscillating magnetic field and the resultant emergent electromagnetic phenomena have not been systematically clarified. 


In this study, we theoretically study the resonance modes and the emergent electromagnetic phenomena in a one-dimensional chiral magnet by numerically solving the Landau-Lifshitz-Gilbert equation (LLG eq.) and by using the linear spin wave theory. We systematically clarified the magnon band structure by varying the external magnetic field and find that the band gaps increase with the magnetic field perpendicular to the chiral axis. We also find the edge modes appear within the band gap and clarify that the swirling spin textures penetrate into the system from the edges by activating the edge modes. In the talk, we will also discuss the enhancement of the emergent electric phenomena and AC magnetic field drive of swirling spin textures.
