Special section: Topological defects in ferroic materials

Guest Editors: Vincent Cros, Joo-Von Kim, and Marty Gregg

Topological defects in ferromagnetic and ferroelectric materials have attracted much attention both as a playground of unique physical phenomena but also for potential applications in electronic devices such as reconfigurable memories or logic based devices. This special section aims at covering the different topics related to this new branch of condensed matter physics - domain walls, vortices, skyrmions and beyond.
