One of the simplest quantum many-body systems is the spin-1/2 Heisenberg antiferromagnetic chain, a linear array of interacting magnetic moments. Its exact ground state is a macroscopic singlet entangling all spins in the chain. Its elementary excitations, called spinons, are fractional spin-1/2 quasiparticles created and detected in pairs by neutron(More)
The structures of the high- and low-temperature phases of 38% brominated BCCD [betaine (trimethylammonioacetate) calcium chloride dihydrate], the latter being known as the X-phase, have been determined by single-crystal neutron diffraction at 295 and 20 K, respectively. The symmetry of the X-phase is described by the P2(1)2(1)2(1) space group. The(More)
