Non-harmonic quantum dynamics of single spin systems — •Mario Krizanac, David Altwein, Elena Vedmedenko, and Roland Wiesendanger — Institute of Applied Physics and Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center Hamburg , Germany
The time evolution of single quantum spins became accessible to the experimental observation in the last years [J. Phys. D:Appl. Phys.44(2011)]. Therefore, it was our motivation to study the dynamics of single quantum spin systems with uniaxial anisotropy in an external magnetic Bz-field from a theoretical perspective within the Schroedinger formalism. It has been found that the spin dynamics shows a very complicated non-harmonic periodicity. The period depends on the ratio of the external magnetic Bz-field and the uniaxial anisotropy in Sz direction. We observed two cases, the first one of very high periodicity and a second one of low periodicity. The conditions for these cases can be formulated in the form of a simple equation, which can be easily generalized to describe these conditions for single quantum spin systems of any size.
