Frustrated magnetism in the extended kagome lattice

Abstract:

The extended kagome lattice, composed of alternating kagome and triangular layers, provides a novel geometry for frustrated magnetism. In this thesis, we study the properties of Heisenberg spins with nearest-neighbour antiferromagnetic interactions on this lattice. In common with many other models of frustrated magnets, this system has highly degenerate classical ground states. It is set apart from other examples, however, by the strong interlayer correlations between triangular layer...
