Phase diagram of spin-1 chains with Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction — •Hugo Tschirhart1, Ernest Teng Siang Ong2, Pinaki Sengupta2, and Thomas L. Schmidt1 — 1University of Luxembourg, Luxembourg, Luxembourg — 2Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, Singapore
We investigate an antiferromagnetic spin-1 Heisenberg chain in the presence of Dyzaloshinskii-Moriya interactions (DMI) and an external magnetic field. We study the resulting spin chain using a combination of numerical and analytical techniques. Using DMRG simulations to determine the spectral gap and the entanglement spectrum, we map out the phase diagram as a function of magnetic field strength and DMI strength. We provide a qualitative interpretation for these numerical findings by mapping the spin-1 chain on a spin-1/2 ladder and using a bosonization approach.
