In frustrated magnetic systems, long-range ordering is forbidden and degeneracy of energy states persists, even at extremely low temperatures. Under certain conditions, these systems form an exotic quantum spin-liquid ground state, in which strongly correlated spins fluctuate in the spin lattices. Here we investigate the thermodynamic properties of an anion(More)
Recent studies on the physical properties of the triangular system based on the Pd(dmit)2 salts (dmit=1,3-dithiole-2-thione-4,5-dithiolate) are reviewed. Quantum chemical architectures of the Pd(dmit)2 molecule and its dimer are introduced with emphasis on the strong dimerization of a two-level system, which provides unique physical properties of the salts.(More)
The electronic properties of cation radical salts derived from organometallic mixed-ligand complexes [(ppy)Au(S-S)](ppy- = C-dehydro-2-phenylpyridine(-); S-S(2-) = dithiolene ligand) with Au(III)-C sigma-bond were investigated. A 2:1 salt complex [(ppy)Au(C8H4S8)]2[PF6] (C8H4S8(2-) =(More)
A new method to estimate an in-plane conduction anisotropy in a quasi-two-dimensional (q2D) layered conductor by measuring the inter-layer transverse magnetoresistance is proposed. We applied this method to layered organic conductors β-(BEDT-TTF)2X (BEDT-TTF = bis(ethylenedithio)tetrathiafulvalene, C10H8S8; X = IBr2, I2Br) by applying magnetic field(More)
Through resistivity measurements of an organic crystal hosting massless Dirac fermions with a charge-ordering instability, we reveal the effect of interactions among massless Dirac fermions on the charge transport. A low-temperature resistivity upturn appears robustly irrespective of the pressure and is enhanced while approaching the critical pressure of(More)
