Zero Temperature Magnetic Frustration in Nona-Membered s=3/2 Spin Rings with Bond Defect

Languages of publication
Zero-temperature limits of the local and global thermodynamic quantities in the nine-membered antiferromagnetic s=3/2 spin ring are investigated by means of numerical exact diagonalization. An anisotropic Heisenberg model with tunable bond defect reflecting continuously varying topology (from closed to open ring) is exploited. The frustrated and non-frustrated phases are identified in the ground-state phase diagram determined by a bond-defect strength and magnetic field. Near the phase boundaries significance of the thermal fluctuations affecting the estimates of the local magnetic quantities found earlier at T=1 K is revealed. For the global quantities the effects of thermal fluctuations are found much weaker. A sequence of the local magnetic moments is analysed and their experimental verification at the edges of the non-frustrated and within the entire frustrated phase is suggested at sufficiently low temperature.
