Spin Liquids : Broken Discrete Symmetries Restored ∗


We introduce a novel kind of spin liquid, the spin 1 chirality liquid, which provides a generic paradigm for a disordered spin 1 antiferromagnet in two dimensions. It supports spinon and holon excitations, which carry a chirality quantum number. These excitations obey half-fermi statistics. The sign of the statistical parameter is determined by the… (More)
