Minimal model for the frustrated spin ladder system BiCu2PO6 — •Leanna Splinter1, Nils Alexander Drescher2, Holger Krull3, and Götz Silvester Uhrig4 — 1tu Dortmund — 2tu Dortmund — 3tu Dortmund — 4tu Dortmund
The microscopic model of the compound BiCu2PO6 contains tubelike structures, which can be described by coupled frustrated spin ladders with a finite gap. Inelastic neutron scattering experiments showed that the triplon excitation modes are split and not three-fold degenerate, as would be expected for spin isotropy. Because of the large atomic number of the bismuth ions (Z=83) the spin-orbit-coupling has a non-negligible effect by the Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction on the dispersion. Using a deepCUT approach for the isotropic model and including the anisotropic interactions on a mean-field level we are able to describe the low-energy part of the dispersions by Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interactions of about 30 % . Additionally, we can reproduce the magnetic field dependence. Currently, we are extending our model from the one-particle level to including quasi-particle decay, which is induced by the anisotropic interactions. The hydridization between one- and two-triplon states is claimed to explain the different bending behaviour of the individual triplon dispersions .
