Figure 3 thumbnail - Experimental evidence of quantum spin
Experimental evidence of quantum spin liquid explained by Kitaev theoretical model 26/07/2017

Inelastic neutron scattering (INS) has provided experimental evidence that the two dimensional material, alpha ruthenium trichloride, α-RuCl3 is a strong candidate for a quantum spin liquid (QSL) that fits the Kitaev theoretical model.
