Reduced dimensionality in layered quantum dimer magnets: Frustration vs. inhomogeneous condensates

  title={Reduced dimensionality in layered quantum dimer magnets: Frustration vs. inhomogeneous condensates},
  author={Oliver Rosch and Matthias Vojta},
  journal={Physical Review B},
Motivated by recent experiments on BaCuSi2O6, we investigate magnetic excitations and quantum phase transitions of layered dimer magnets with inter-layer frustration. We consider two scenarios, (A) a lattice with one dimer per unit cell and perfect inter-layer frustration, and (B) an enlarged unit cell with inequivalent layers, with and without perfect frustration. In all situations, the critical behavior at asymptotically low temperatures is three-dimensional, but the corresponding crossover… Expand

Multiple Magnetic Bilayers and Unconventional Criticality without Frustration in BaCuSi_{2}O_{6}.
It is demonstrated by detailed quantum Monte Carlo simulations that the magnetic interaction parameters deduce can account for all the measured properties of BaCuSi_{2}O_{6}, opening the way to a quantitative understanding of nonuniversal scaling in any modulated layered system. Expand

Theory of magnetic-field-induced Bose-Einstein condensation of triplons inBa3Cr2O8
Motivated by recent experiments on ${\text{Ba}}_{3}{\text{Cr}}_{2}{\text{O}}_{8}$, a new spin-dimer compound with spin-1/2 moments of ${\text{Cr}}^{5+}$ ions, we theoretically investigate theExpand
Supplemental Material for “Multiple Magnetic Bilayers and Unconventional Criticality without Frustration in BaCuSi2O6”
As stated in the main text, using the crystallographic unit cell of BaCuSi2O6 creates an ambiguity in the interpretation of observed triplon dispersions. In brief, doubling of the spatial unit cellExpand
