Magnetic Excitations in the Disordered Phase of the 2-D Heisenberg Antiferromagnet

The discovery of the new high temperature superconductors has been at the origin of renewed interest in the physics of the 2-D quantum antife- rromagnet. At low temperatures La2CuO4and YBa2Cu3O6 are anisotropic insulating antiferromagnets with Neel temperatures of 245 and 415 °K, respectively1,2. The in-plane exchange constant is very large, J ~ 2000°K, and the anisotropy ratio J ⊥/J ~ 10-5 2. Due to this large anisotropy these compounds are very accurately bidimensional.
