Quantum magnets with strong spin-orbit interaction probed via neutron and x-ray scattering

Abstract:

This thesis presents details of x-ray and neutron scattering experiments used to probe quantum magnets with strong spin-orbit interaction. The first of these systems are the three-dimensional iridate compounds, in which the three-fold co-ordination of IrO6 octahedra has been theoretically hypothesized to stabilize anisotropic exchange between Ir4+ ions. This novel interaction between these spin-orbital entangled, Jeff=1/2 moments is described by a ...
