Paper: Spin excitations in the frustrated triangular lattice antiferromagnet NaYbO2

June 22, 2020

Our paper exploring the field dependence of the spin excitations and the formation of static order in NaYbO2 was published today in Phys. Rev. B.  This work reveals a first order phase boundary out of the field induced up-up-down state in this quantum spin liquid candidate system.  We further explore the crystal field Hamiltonian as well as the spin dynamics of the field-induced ordered state in this material.
