A variety of nontrivial spin textures can appear on the nanoscale as a result of competing magnetic interactions. A notable example being studied actively at present is the Dzyaloshinskii‐Moriya interaction (DMI), which results from spin-orbit coupling and chiral symmetry breaking in thin films and multilayers [1,2]. The DMI not only confers a preferred handedness to spin configurations such as domain walls [3] and skyrmions [4], but it also influences how excitations like spin waves propagate within a material.

I will describe some recent theoretical work on how the DMI influences dynamical magnetization processes in ultrathin films. In particular, I will discuss how nonreciprocity and focusing effects can occur for spin waves in continuous films [5] and within chiral domain walls [6]. I will also present novel features involving skyrmion and antiskyrmion dynamics [7], where pair generation processes result in excess skyrmion charges. Such systems represent an interesting playground in which we can probe how matter/antimatter asymmetry arises between topological magnetic charges.
