A monoaxial chiral magnet forms a kind of spin superlattice structure, termed chiral soliton lattice (CSL), by the application of a magnetic field H perpendicular to a helical chiral axis. It has been reported that the CSL accompanies the magnetoresistance effect as well as a discrete change in magnetization and magnetoresistance. In order to verify the effect of the structural modification on the CSL state, we measured the magnetoresistance under the dynamic stress (DS) with a frequency of the order of MHz, which was applied by a piezoelectric ceramic oscillator. The steady application of DS while decreasing H resulted in a suppression of the insertion of chiral soliton. On the other hand, the application of a pulse-like DS while H decreased assisted the insertion of chiral soliton. These results demonstrate that DS modifies the spin structure of the monoaxial chiral magnet, and we can therefore change the activation energy for the insertion of chiral soliton while H is decreased.
