S=½ chain in a staggered field: high-energy bound-spinon state and the effects of a discrete lattice
(American Physical Society, 2005-03-01)
We report an experimental and theoretical study of the antiferromagnetic S=½ chain subject to uniform and staggered fields. Using inelastic neutron scattering, we observe a bound-spinon state at high energies in the linear ...
Broken parity and a chiral ground state in the frustrated magnet CdCr2O4
(American Physical Society, 2006-08-01)
We present a model describing the lattice distortion and incommensurate magnetic order in the spinel CdCr2O4, a good realization of the Heisenberg 'pyrochlore' antiferromagnet. The magnetic frustration is relieved through ...
Spinons in the strongly correlated copper oxide chains in SrCuO2
(American Physical Society, 2004-08-20)
We have investigated the spin dynamics in the strongly correlated chain copper oxide SrCuO2 for energies up to ≥0.6 eV using inelastic neutron scattering. We observe a gapless continuum of magnetic excitations, which is ...
Ising phases of Heisenberg ladders in a magnetic field
(American Physical Society, 2007-09-14)
We show that Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya (DM) interactions can substantially modify the phase diagram of spin-1/2 Heisenberg ladders in a magnetic field provided they compete with exchange. For nonfrustrated ladders, they induce ...
Phase diagram and spin Hamiltonian of weakly-coupled anisotropic S=½ chains in CuCl2·2((CD3)2SO)
(American Physical Society, 2007-06-01)
Field-dependent specific heat and neutron scattering measurements were used to explore the antiferromagnetic S=½ chain compound CuCl2·2((CD3)2SO). At zero field the system acquires magnetic long-range order below TN=0.93 ...
Itinerant magnetic excitations in antiferromagnetic CaFe2As2
(American Physical Society, 2009-05-08)
Neutron scattering measurements of the magnetic excitations in single crystals of antiferromagnetic CaFe2As2 reveal steeply dispersive and well-defined spin waves up to an energy of ~100 meV. Magnetic excitations above 100 ...
