Spectrum of relaxation times for ising spin clusters in random fields
- 17 Downloads
Exact results on the single-spin-flip Glauber dynamics of six-coupled random field Ising spins with the coordination number of four are presented. Two distributions of random fields (RF), binary (BD) and Gaussian (GD) ones, are investigated. The effects of the static magnetic field are discussed. In the zero-magnetic-field case, the number of diverging relaxation times is equal to the number of energy minima minus one. This rule breaks in the presence of a magnetic field. The longest relaxation times in the absence of the field verify the Arrhenius law with the energy barrier determined by the energy needed to invert the ground-state spin configuration. At low temperature, according to the Arrhenius law, the spectrum of relaxation times shows a two-peaked distribution on a logarithmic scale. In the GD case of RF, the energy barrier distribution is continuous, while it is quasi-discrete in the BD case.
