Spin correlations among the charge carriers in an ordered stripe phase.
We have observed a diffuse component to the low-energy magnetic excitation spectrum of stripe-ordered La(5/3)Sr(1/3)NiO4 probed by neutron inelastic scattering. The diffuse scattering forms a square pattern with sides parallel and perpendicular to the stripe directions. The signal is dispersive, with a maximum energy of approximately 10 meV. Probed at 2 meV, the scattering decreases in strength with increasing temperature, and is barely visible at 100 K. We argue that the signal originates fr...Expand abstract
