@article{Bohrdt2017DynamicSF, title={Dynamic structure factor in impurity-doped spin chains}, author={Annabelle Bohrdt and Kevin Jagering and Sebastian Eggert and Imke Schneider}, journal={Physical Review B}, year={2017} }

The effects of impurities in spin-1/2 Heisenberg chains are recently experiencing a renewed interest due to experimental realizations in solid state systems and ultra-cold gases. The impurities effectively cut the chains into finite segments with a discrete spectrum and characteristic correlations, which have a distinct effect on the dynamic structure factor. Using bosonization and the numerical Density Matrix Renormalization Group we provide detailed quantitative predictions for the momentum…
