  3. Inelastic Neutron Scattering Nuclear scattering Magnetic scattering

  4. SPINS Cold neutron triple axis spectrometer at NCNR

  5. Dynamic condensed matter: Phonons ZrW2O8 Al2O3 Weak connectivity Low energy “twist” modes Strong connectivity “Hard” spectrum Ernst el al (1998)

  6. Dynamic condensed matter: 1D antiferromag. Y2BaNiO5 : spin 1 AFM Ni 2+ Infrared divergence destabilizes Neel phase 2 Cooperative singlet ground state

  7. Dynamic Condensed matter: Magnetic Frustration ZnCr2O4 S.-H. Lee et al Weak connectivity triangular motif Interactions specify local order, not a critical Q vector

  8. Consequences of strong fluctuations Phonons : Thermal contraction Frustration : cooperative paramagnet c-1 Ernst et al (1998) 0 0 200 400 600 800 1000 T (K) 1D magnons : macroscopic singlet Ajiro et al. (1989)

  9. Macroscopic singlet ground state of S=1 chain • Magnets with 2S=nz have a nearest neighbor singlet covering • with full lattice symmetry. • This is exact ground state for spin projection Hamiltonian • Excited states are propagating bond triplets separated from the • ground state by an energy gap Haldane PRL 1983 Affleck, Kennedy, Lieb, and Tasaki PRL 1987

  10. Impurities in Y2BaNiO5 Ca2+ Mg Pure • Mg2+on Ni2+ sites finite length chains • Ca2+ on Y3+ sites mobile bond defects Mg Ca2+ Ni Y3+ Kojima et al. (1995)

  11. Zeeman resonance of chain-end spins 20 g=2.16 hw (meV) 15 0 2 4 6 8 H (Tesla) 10 I(H=9 T)-I(H=0 T) (cts. per min.) 0 -5 0 0.5 1 1.5 2

  12. Form factor of chain-end spins Y2BaNi1-xMgxO5 x=4% Q-dependence reveals that resonating object is AFM. The peak resembles S(Q) for pure system. Chain end spin carry AFM spin polarization of length x back into chain

  13. Sub gap excitations in Ca-doped Y2BaNiO5 Pure 9.5% Ca Y2-xCaxBaNiO5: • Ca-doping • creates states • below the gap • sub-gap states • have doubly • peaked structure • factor G. Xu et al. Science (2000)

  14. Incommensurate modulations in high TC superconductors YBa2Cu3O6.6 T=13 K E=25 meV k (rlu) h (rlu) La2-xSrxCuO4 Hayden et al. 1998 Yamada et al. 1998

  15. Why is Y2-xCaxBaNiO5 incommensurate? x q d µ • Charge ordering yields incommensurate spin order • Quasi-particle Quasi-hole pair excitations in Luttinger liquid • Single impurity effect dqindep. ofx

  16. Does d q vary with calcium concentration? dq not strongly dependent on x single impurity effect G. Xu et al. Science (2000)

  21. Conclusions • Weakly connected systems • Low energy fluctuations of composite degrees of freedom • Unusual bulk properties and impurity effects • Challenging to describe because fluctuations are essential • Impurities in spin-1 chain • They create sup-gap composite spin degrees of freedom • Edge states have extended AFM wave function • Holes create AFM spin polaron with phase shift p • Field effects in spin-1/2 chain • Gap-less RVB state, singlet formation on all length scales • Magnetization is carried by soliton defects that form dynamic incommensurate superstructure.
