Spin liquids in rare earth pyrochlores : quantum spin ice and beyond

Date : Tuesday, February 12th, 2019 11:00 - 12:00 Place : Seminar Room 5 (A615), 6th Floor, ISSP Lecturer : Prof. Subhro Bhattacharjee Committee Chair : Satoru Nakatsuji (63240)

Rare earth pyrochlores present many possible candidates for hosting Quantum spin liquids (QSL). In this talk, starting with the most well-known QSL proposed for these materials– the Quantum Spin Ice, I will discuss the effect of an external electric field to probe the QSL and drive transition. I will end with a discussion of possible alternatives candidate QSLs beyond Quantum Spin Ice and in particular discuss the properties of a fermionic QSL and its competition with magnetic phases in context of rare earth pyrochlores.
