Abstract: Materials at the boundary of critical phase transitions are of significant fundamental interest, not least due because of their connection to unconventional superconductivity and quantum magnetism. One characteristic of such systems is the presence of coupled order parameters that underlie these phase transitions. Here, we explore how this coupling manifests in the response of these materials when driven out of equilibrium by applied currents. We demonstrate how magnetic and charge textures can be electrically manipulated, suggesting possible applications for exotic materials in spintronics technologies.
