The honeycomb lattice α-RuCl3 is among the most promising candidates to realize a Kitaev spin liquid [1] that hosts Majorana fermions. In applied magnetic fields, the low temperature zig-zag antiferromagnetic order is suppressed, and α-RuCl3 approaches quantum criticality at Hc = 6.5 T [2,3]. Our Raman study reveals distinct changes in low energy magnetic excitations as a function of applied fields. Based on a detailed temperature analysis [4,5] we comment on the fate of Majorana fermionic excitations and multiparticle quasiparticles at and beyond the quantum critical point.
