Quantum Spin Liquids: Life After the Drought
Speaker(s): Patrick Lee
Abstract: The quantum spin liquid state is a prime example of an emergent phenomenon. Theory predicts that new particles such as spinons and gauge fields may emerge at low temperatures. However, for many years there have not been any examples in nature. The situation has changed in recent years in that a number of candidate materials have been discovered which may exhibit these exotic phenomena.
