Quantum spin liquid (QSL), an exotic magnetic phase with fractionalized spin excitations and intricate entanglement structure, has been pursued both theoretically and experimentally since its first proposal by Anderson in 1973. Theoretical models and candidate materials with strong geometrical or exchange frustration are expected to greatly reduce the ordering temperature and reveal the...
In frustrated magnets, novel phases characterized by fractionalized excitations and emergent gauge fields can occur. A paradigmatic example is given by the Kitaev model of localized spins 1/2 on the honeycomb lattice, which realizes an exactly solvable quantum spin liquid ground state with Majorana fermions as low-energy excitations. I will demonstrate that the Kitaev solution can be...
I will present some results showing that the Hubbard repulsion and other interactions like the Hund's coupling and electron-phonon interaction can either compete or cooperate, leading to different strongly correlated phases.
First I will review the interplay between Hubbard U and Hund's coupling emphasizing how different fillings are characterized by different scenarios. Namely at...
plays a key role in our
understanding of quantum materials,
but a lack of small parameters has posed a
long-standing problem. We
present a 3 dimensional
S$=1/2$ Kondo lattice model describing a spin liquid within an
electron sea. Strong correlations in the spin liquid
are treated exactly, enabling a controlled analytical approach. The
