We investigate the spontaneous generation of crystallized topological defects via the combining effects of fast rotation and rapid thermal quench on spin-1 Bose-Einstein condensates (BECs). By solving the stochastic projected Gross-Pitaevskii equation, we show that, when the system reaches equilibrium, a hexagonal lattice of skyrmions and a square lattice of half-quantized vortices can be formed in a ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic spinor BEC, respectively, which can be imaged by using the polarization-dependent phase-contrast method.
