We have investigated experimentally and theoretically the series (Na$_{1-x}$Li$_{x}$)$_{2}$IrO$_{3}$. Contrary to what has been believed so far, only for $x\leq0.25$ the system forms uniform solid solutions. For larger Li content, as evidenced by powder X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy and density functional theory calculations, the system shows a miscibility gap and a phase separation into an ordered Na$_{3}$LiIr$_2$O$_{6}$ phase with alternating Na$_3$ and LiIr$_2$O$_6$ planes… Expand
High-pressure versus isoelectronic doping effect on the honeycomb iridate Na 2 IrO 3
We study the effect of isoelectronic doping and external pressure in tuning the ground state of the honeycomb iridate Na$_2$IrO$_3$ by combining optical spectroscopy with synchrotron x-rayExpand
Chemical and hydrostatic-pressure effects on the Kitaev honeycomb material Na2IrO3
The low-temperature magnetic properties of \tcr{polycrystalline} Na$_2$IrO$_3$, a candidate material for the realization of a quantum spin-liquid state, were investigated by means of muon-spinExpand
Pressure-induced structural dimerization in the hyperhoneycomb iridate β−Li2IrO3 at low temperatures
A pressure-induced collapse of magnetic ordering in $\beta$-Li$_2$IrO$_3$ at $P_m\sim1.5- 2$ GPa has previously been interpreted as evidence for possible emergence of spin liquid states in thisExpand
Competition between spin-orbit coupling, magnetism, and dimerization in the honeycomb iridates: α -Li 2 IrO 3 under pressure
Single-crystal x-ray diffraction studies with synchrotron radiation on the honeycomb iridate $\alpha$-Li$_{2}$IrO$_{3}$ reveal a pressure-induced structural phase transition with symmetry loweringExpand
Spin-orbital excitons and their potential condensation in pentavalent iridates
We investigate magnetic excitations in iridium insulators with pentavalent Ir$^{5+}$ ($5d^4$) ions with strong spin-orbit coupling. We obtain a microscopic model based on the local Ir$^{5+}$Expand
Local Moment Instability of Os in Honeycomb Li2.15Os0.85O3
Applied density functional theory (DFT) leads to a reduced moment, suggesting incipient itineracy of the valence electrons, and finding evidence that Li over stoichiometry leads to Os(4+)−Os(5+) mixed valence. Expand
Synthesis and investigation of frustrated Honeycomb lattice iridates and rhodates
Iridates have attracted considerable interest in the last few years due to their potential to host novel electronic and magnetic phases mediated by the combination of strong spin orbit coupling andExpand
Charge transfer instability in a mixed Ir/Rh honeycomb lattice in Li 2 Ir 1- x Rh x O 3 solid solution
Abstract The solid solution series Li2Ir1-xRhxO3 is synthesized for several values of x between 0 and 1. The compounds possess a monoclinic layered structure (space group C2/m) throughout the solidExpand
Cu2IrO3: A New Magnetically Frustrated Honeycomb Iridate.
The weak short-range magnetism combined with the nearly ideal honeycomb structure places Cu2IrO3 closer to a Kitaev spin liquid than its predecessors. Expand
Strong tuning of magnetism and electronic structure by spin orientation
To efficiently manipulate magnetism is a key physical issue for modern condensed matter physics, which is also crucial for magnetic functional applications. Most previous relevant studies rely on theExpand
