Magnetic skyrmion, particle-like topologically non-trivial spin textures, attracts surge of interests from both fundamental and application points of view. Since the first discovery in MnSi crystallizing in the cubic space group $$P2_13$$, intensive research on magnetic skyrmions has conducted for materials particularly in this space group. This leads to findings of new class of materials, whereas magnetic ions were mostly limited to d electron systems. Recently, it turned out that f-electron compounds can host magnetic skyrmion lattice as well. The magnetic skyrmions in f-electron compounds possess contrasting characteristics, such as short periodicity and strong anisotropy. Among recent discoveries, cubic chiral compound EuPtSi provides ideal opportunities to compare with d-electron systems as it crystallizes in the same space group as MnSi, namely $$P2_13$$. We will present our neutron and X-ray scattering studies to characterize magnetic skyrmion lattice in this compound.
