Gapless spin liquid in the kagome Heisenberg antiferromagnet with Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interactions
A preponderance of evidence suggests that the ground state of the nearest-neighbor $S = 1/2$ antiferromagnetic Heisenberg model on the kagome lattice is a gapless spin liquid. Many candidateExpand
Signatures of Dirac cones in a DMRG study of the Kagome Heisenberg model
The antiferromagnetic spin-$1/2$ Heisenberg model on a kagome lattice is one of the most paradigmatic models in the context of spin liquids, yet the precise nature of its ground state is notExpand
Gapless Spin-Liquid Ground State in the S=1/2 Kagome Antiferromagnet.
This work applies the formalism of tensor-network states, specifically the method of projected entangled simplex states, which combines infinite system size with a correct accounting for multipartite entanglement to demonstrate the ground state of the nearest-neighbor Heisenberg model is a gapless spin liquid.

Spin dynamics of the spin-1/2 kagome lattice antiferromagnet ZnCu3(OH)6Cl2.
We have performed thermodynamic and neutron scattering measurements on the S=1/2 kagomé lattice antiferromagnet ZnCu3(OH)6Cl2. The susceptibility indicates a Curie-Weiss temperature of theta CWExpand
First excitations of the spin 1/2 Heisenberg antiferromagnet on the kagomé lattice
Abstract:We study the exact low energy spectra of the spin 1/2 Heisenberg antiferromagnet on small samples of the kagomé lattice of up to N=36 sites. In agreement with the conclusions of previousExpand
Magnetic ground state of an experimental S=1/2 kagome antiferromagnet.
It is concluded that for x>0.8 zinc paratacamite is a spin liquid without a spin gap, in which unpaired spins give rise to a macroscopically degenerate ground state manifold with increasingly glassy dynamics as x is lowered. Expand
Three-sublattice order in triangular- and Kagomé-lattice spin-half antiferromagnets.
It is found that the Kagome-lattice model is disordered whereas the triangular-latta model is very close to the critical point for anti-ferromagnetism; if ordered, the latter has an order parameter much smaller than that predicted by spin-wave theory. Expand
Spin-Liquid Ground State of the S = 1/2 Kagome Heisenberg Antiferromagnet
This work uses the density matrix renormalization group to perform accurate calculations of the ground state of the nearest-neighbor quantum spin S = 1/2 Heisenberg antiferromagnet on the kagome lattice and provides strong evidence that, for the infinite two-dimensional system, the groundState of this model is a fully gapped spin liquid.

Gapless ground state in the archetypal quantum kagome antiferromagnet ZnCu3(OH)6Cl2
Spin liquids are exotic phases of quantum matter that challenge Landau’s paradigm of symmetry-breaking phase transitions. Despite strong exchange interactions, spins do not order or freeze down toExpand
Gapped Spin-1/2 Spinon Excitations in a New Kagome Quantum Spin Liquid Compound Cu3Zn(OH)6FBr*
We report a new kagome quantum spin liquid candidate Cu3Zn(OH)6FBr, which does not experience any phase transition down to 50 mK, more than three orders lower than the antiferromagnetic Curie-WeissExpand
