Quantum Critical Points-Experiments

  • Chapter

Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSE,volume 349)

Abstract

We review experiments on Li(Ho,Tb)pY1-pF4 which test ideas about quantum critical phenomena in the clean (ferromagnetic) and disordered (spin glass) limits. The outstanding problem of the ‘anti-glass’ discovered for p=0.045 is also described. Finally, we point out the ubiquity of quantum critical points in condensed matter physics.

Keywords

  • Spin Glass
  • Quantum Phase Transition
  • Quantum Fluctuation
  • Quantum Critical Point
  • Transverse Field

These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
