Paper: Thermal evolution of quasi-one-dimensional spin correlations within the anisotropic triangular lattice of α−NaMnO2

November 01, 2018

Our paper exploring the evolution of static order in NaMnO2 was published today.  This paper explores the evolution of quasi-1D correlations in this material as it cools toward the ordered state.  An intermediate, incommensurate order is observed prior to the freezing of three dimensional Neel order.  This is consistent with expectations of a mean-field model of weakly coupled Ising chains.
