Whirls in Magnets: From Skyrmions to Magnetic Monopoles

In magnets lacking inversion symmetry, topologically quantized magnetic whirls, so-called skyrmions, form due to spin-orbit interactions. Skyrmions are tiny, stable, couple extremely efficiently to electric currents and can be manipulated by small forces. They are therefore promising candidates for, e.g., future magnetic memories. The coupling of skyrmions to electrons arises from Berry phases, which can efficiently be described by an artificial electromagnetic field. We investigate how the topology of skyrmion phase can be changed by singular magnetic defects which can be identified as emergent magnetic monopoles.

Cosmological signatures of exotic electromagnetic energy injection

Cosmological probes have a lot to tell us about the nature of the Dark Matter in our Universe. In this talk, I would like to review in particular how CMB temperature and polarization anisotropies can be used to look for exotic electromagnetic energy injection, coming for instance from decaying particles. I will then develop the recent searches for low masses - evaporating - primordial Black Holes, as well as high masses - accreting - ones. Finally, I will emphasize the synergy with CMB spectral distortions and Big Bang Nucleosynthesis studies and illustrate how the 21cm signal, one of the main target of future experiments, could be used in order to improve (but not always!) over current sensitivity.

Thermal Relic Zoo

Dark matter may be a thermal relic, i.e. a new particle that had a temperature in the early Universe. I’ll give an overview of different types of thermal dark matter candidates, and I’ll discuss our recent paper, arXiv:1705.08450, where we identify a new class of thermal relics.

The diverse history of counterrotating galaxies

Current and upcoming IFU and HI surveys will provide us with a wealth of kinematic information that could give clues to the evolutionary and environmental history of individual galaxies. Extreme kinematics like counter-rotation of gas or stars is particularly interesting as this can provide additional dynamical or evolutionary constraints. There is however no statistical prediction of the occurrence, properties and possible origin of counter-rotating galaxies within the concordance cosmological framework. I will present a study of these issues using the Illustris cosmological simulation. We predict the general occurrence and properties of counter-rotating galaxies over a large range in stellar mass. Additionally, we focus in detail on the evolutionary history of 5 disky sub-L* galaxies that show extremely clear gas disk-stellar disk counterrotation. These specific galaxies are selected as analogues to an observational sample of counter-rotating dwarf galaxies carried on with Keck. I will summarize the several mechanisms identified as origin of counter-rotation in low mass galaxies, and discuss possible links between counter-rotation and a galaxy’s evolutionary history.
