Night & Day

This is another demo build with the Hephaestus engine, a game development library I have been working on in my spare time. Night & Day is a sketch of a puzzle platformer inspired by Sparpweed’s amazing game. Hephaestus engine uses internally Erin Catto’s Box2D as a physics simulator engine. Here is some gameplay footage.

Magnon-skyrmion scattering in chiral magnets

For the last months I have been working on a joint project with Markus Garst in which we studied the magnon scattering from a skyrmion texture. Today we submitted a draft of the paper to the preprint arxiv (arXiv:1405.1568). Skyrmions in chiral magnets are topological magnetisation configurations stabilized due to the Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction (a result […]
