We present measurements on a series of materials, Li_{2}In_{1-x}Sc_{x}Mo_{3}O_{8}, that can be described as a 1/6th-filled breathing kagome lattice. Substituting Sc for In generates chemical pressure which alters the breathing parameter nonmonotonically. Muon spin rotation experiments show that this chemical pressure tunes the system from antiferromagnetic long range order to a quantum spin liquid phase. A strong correlation with the breathing parameter implies that it is the dominant parameter…

Gapless spin liquid of an organic triangular compound evidenced by thermodynamic measurements

This work presents distinct evidence for the formation of a gapless spin liquid by examining the T-linear heat capacity coefficient, γ, in the low-temperature heat capacity of EtMe3Sb[Pd(dmit)2]2, an organic dimer-based Mott insulator with two-dimensional triangular lattice structure.

Nature of the Spin Liquid Ground State in a Breathing Kagome Compound Studied by NMR and Series Expansion.

This study provides new impetus for further theoretical investigations in order to establish whether the gapless spin liquid behavior displayed by DQVOF is intrinsic to its breathing kagome lattice or whether it is due to perturbations to this model, such as a residual coupling of the V^{4+} ions in the breathingKagome planes to the interlayer V^{3+} (S=1) spins.

Fractionalized excitations in the spin-liquid state of a kagome-lattice antiferromagnet

At low temperatures, neutron scattering measurements on single-crystal samples of the spin-1/2 kagome-lattice antiferromagnet ZnCu3(OD)6Cl2 (also called herbertsmithite), which provide striking evidence for this characteristic feature of spin liquids, find that the spin excitations form a continuum, in contrast to the conventional spin waves expected in orderedAntiferromagnets.

Magnetic and non-magnetic phases of a quantum spin liquid

It is shown that applying a small magnetic field to this system produces a quantum phase transition between the spin-liquid phase and an antiferromagnetic phase with a strongly suppressed moment, which can be described as Bose–Einstein condensation of spin excitations with an extremely small spin gap.
