Abstract

We investigate the magnetic torque and magnetoresistance (MR) responses in oblique magnetic fields in micrometer-sized specimens of the hexagonal chiral magnetic crystal CrNb3S6. The results exhibit hysteresis over a wide range of applied field angles, while reversible behavior appears only when the magnetic field is closely aligned to the helical axis of the crystal. Stepwise changes of the magnetic torque and MR detected in the hysteresis region indicate the existence of chiral solitons in the oblique magnetic fields. A magnetic phase diagram is derived from the experimental results, and the stability of the chiral magnetic phases, such as the chiral soliton lattice and chiral conical phase, and the nature of the phase transition between them are discussed.
