Nearly Ferromagnetic Spin-Triplet Superconductivity

Sheng NMN Ran, Christoper Eckberg, Qing-Ping Ding, Yuji Furukawa, Tristin Metz, Shanta Ranjan Saha, I Lin NMN Liu, Mark Zic, Hyunsoo Kim, Johnpierre NMN Paglione, Nicholas P. Butch
One of the most interesting differences between spin triplet superconductors and the conventional spin singlet variety is the two-component triplet order

Quantum Spin Ice Dynamics in the Dipole-Octupole Pyrochlore Magnet Ce2Zr2O7

Jonathan Gaudet, E. M. Smith, J. Dudemaine, J. Beare, C.R.C. Buhariwalla, Nicholas P. Butch, M. B. Stone, A. I. Kolesniko, Guangyong NMN Xu, D. R. Yahne, K. A. Ross, C. A. Marjerrison, J. D. Garrett, G. M. Luke, A. D. Bianchi, B. D. Gaulin
Neutron scattering measurements on the pyrochlore magnet Ce2Zr2O7 reveal an unusual crystal field splitting of its lowest J=5/2 multiplet, such that its ground

High Temperature Singlet-Based Magnetism from Hund's Rule Correlations

Lin Miao, Rourav Basak, Sheng NMN Ran, Yishuai Xu, Erica Kotta, Haowei He, Jonathan D. Denlinger, Yi-De Chuang, Yang Zhao, Zhijun Xu, Jeffrey W. Lynn, J. R. Jeffries, Shanta Ranjan Saha, Ioannis Giannakis, Pegor Aynajian, Chang-Jong Kang, Yilin Wang, Gabriel Kotliar, Nicholas P. Butch, L. Andrew Wray
Novel electronic phenomena frequently form in heavy fermions as a consequence of the mutual nature of localization and itineracy of f-electrons. On the

Behavior of the Breathing Pyrochlore Lattice Ba3Yb2Zn5O11 in Applied Magnetic Field

J. G. Rau, L. S. Wu, A. F. May, A. E. Taylor, I-Lin Liu, J. Higgins, Nicholas P. Butch, K. A. Ross, H. S. Nair, M. D. Lumsden, M. J. P. Gingras, A. D. Christianson
The breathing pyrochlore lattice material Ba3Yb2Zn5O11 exists in the nearly decoupled limit, in contrast to most other well-studied breathing pyrochlore

Mechanical Control of Crystal Symmetry and Superconductivity in Weyl Semimetal MoTe2

The concept of topological order applied to condensed matter systems has inspired extensive experimental and theoretical searches for novel types of quantum

Pressure Tuning of Collapse of Helimagnetic Structure in Au2Mn

I Lin NMN Liu, Maria J. Pascale, Juscelino Leao, Craig Brown, William D. Ratcliff, Qingzhen Huang, Nicholas P. Butch
We identify the phase boundary between spiral spin and ferromagnetic phases in Au2Mn at a critical pressure of 16.4 kbar, as determined by neutron diffraction

Phase Competition in the Palmer-Chalker XY Pyrochlore Er2Pt2O7

Sang-Youn Park, S.-H. Do, K.-Y. Choi, J.-H. Kang, Dongjin Jang, B. Schmidt, Manuel Brando, B.-H. Kim, D.-H. Kim, Nicholas P. Butch, Seongsu Lee, Sungdae Ji
The molecular magnetism, representing an isolated spin state, is of particular interest due to characteristics of quantum magnetism with quantum tunneling

Pressure-Resistant Intermediate Valence in the Kondo Insulator SmB6

Nicholas P. Butch, Johnpierre Paglione, Paul Chow, Yuming Xiao, Chris A. Marianetti, Corwin H. Booth, Jason R. Jeffries
Resonant x-ray emission spectroscopy (RXES) was used to determine the pressure dependence of the f-electron occupancy in the Kondo insulator SmB6. Applied
