Fig. 4

Average size of domain jump as a function of temperature and applied field: Plot of cross-correlation function (red line) versus magnetic field for (a) order stripe, (b) skyrmion, and (c) disorder stripe diffraction spots. The black line in the figures corresponds to the correlation value from non-magnetic region (airy fringes). Correlation between two consecutive image patterns was done for those regions as mentioned in Fig. 1 with the corresponding color boxes. The size and position of the boxes was maintained to be same for the entire field range. Color bar represents average jump size. Contour plot of average jumps size 〈X〉 as a function of field and temperature for (d) entire magnetic phase and (e) skyrmion phase only. A peak in the jump size in (d) (red area ≈ 225 K, 150 mT) suggests a critical point
