Research Project:

Theoretical Modeling of Advanced Quantum Materials

The project deals with unconventional quantum properties of frustrated Heisenberg spin systems, which are inspired by an intriguing class of novel quantum materials. The theoretical modeling of frustrated quantum materials will exploit the state-of-the-art analytical and numerical methods including among other matters the rigorous mapping transformations, the full exact diagonalization and the finite-temperature Lanczos method. The first part of the project is devoted to an investigation of a robustness of the quantum entanglement of the mixed-spin Heisenberg extended delta chain against rising temperature and magnetic field as indispensable requirement for quantum computing and processing of information. The model is inspired by the quantum spin-chain material [{CuIIMnIIL}{(µ-NC)3WV(bipy)(CN)3}]+, whereby our aim is to provide clarification of its static and dynamic properties along with theoretical interpretation of available magnetic data. In the second part of the project we will characterize in detail long-range entanglement of paradigmatic frustrated Heisenberg spin system with a quantum spin-liquid ground state, which provides promising platform for quantum computation and quantum information processing.  This latter stage will be done in close collaboration with the experimental groups searching for quantum spin-liquid materials.
