A symmetry-based analysis (projective symmetry group) is used to study spin-liquid phases on the triangular and Kagom\'e lattices in the Schwinger boson framework. A maximum of eight distinct ${Z}_{2}$ spin-liquid states are found for each lattice, which preserve all symmetries. Out of these only a few have nonvanishing nearest-neighbor amplitudes, which are studied in greater detail. On the triangular lattice, only two such states are present---the first (zero-flux state) is the well-known… 

Dynamical structure factor of the triangular antiferromagnet: Schwinger boson theory beyond mean field

We compute the zero temperature dynamical structure factor $S({\bf q},\omega)$ of the triangular lattice Heisenberg model (TLHM) using a Schwinger boson approach that includes the Gaussian

Quantum spin liquid ground states of the Heisenberg-Kitaev model on the triangular lattice

We study quantum disordered ground states of the two-dimensional Heisenberg-Kitaev model on the triangular lattice using a Schwinger boson approach. Our aim is to identify and characterize potential

Schwinger-Boson mean-field study of spin-1/2 $J_1$-$J_2$-$J_{\chi}$ model in honeycomb lattice: thermal Hall signature

We theoretically investigate, within the Schwinger-Boson mean-field theory, the transition from a gapped Z2 quantum spin-liquid, in a J1-J2 Heisenberg spin-1/2 system in a honeycomb lattice, to a

Superconductivity from a confinement transition out of a fractionalized Fermi liquid with Z2 topological and Ising-nematic orders

The Schwinger-boson theory of the frustrated square lattice antiferromagnet yields a stable, gapped $\mathbb{Z}_2$ spin liquid ground state with time-reversal symmetry, incommensurate spin

Competing Spin Liquid Phases in the S=$\frac{1}{2}$ Heisenberg Model on the Kagome Lattice

The properties of ground state of spin-\frac{1}{2}12 kagome antiferromagnetic Heisenberg (KAFH) model have attracted considerable interest in the past few decades, and recent numerical simulations

Quantum phase transitions beyond the Landau paradigm in a Sp(4) spin system

We propose quantum phase transitions beyond the Landau's paradigm of Sp(4) spin Heisenberg models on the triangular and square lattices, motivated by the exact Sp(4)$\simeq$ SO(5) symmetry of

Unification of bosonic and fermionic theories of spin liquids on the kagome lattice

Recent numerical studies have provided strong evidence for a gapped $Z_2$ quantum spin liquid in the kagome lattice spin-1/2 Heisenberg model. A special feature of spin liquids is that symmetries can

SymmetricZ2spin liquids and their neighboring phases on triangular lattice

Motivated by recent numerical discovery of a gapped spin liquid phase in spin-$1/2$ triangular-lattice $J_1$-$J_2$ Heisenberg model, we classify symmetric $Z_2$ spin liquids on triangular lattice in

Constructing a gapless spin-liquid state for the spin-1/2 J(1)-J(2) Heisenberg model on a square lattice.

A power law decay of the dimer correlation function on a torus, and a lnL correction to the entanglement entropy, indicating a gapless spin-liquid phase at the optimum parameter are found.

Four-Spin Terms and the Origin of the Chiral Spin Liquid in Mott Insulators on the Triangular Lattice.

This work studies the effect of the additional four-spin interactions naturally generated from the underlying Mott-insulator physics of electrons as the repulsion decreases and finds that they stabilize a chiral spin liquid of Kalmeyer-Laughlin (KL) type, clarifying observations in recent studies of the Hubbard model.
