"Domain wall dynamics in a near-Ising ferromagnetic chain CoCl2*2D2O"


In this presentation, I will discuss the magnetic excitations of a near-Ising ferromagnet in a longitudinal field.
The near Ising ferromagnetic chain has a characteristic excitation spectrum. In zero field the elementary excitations are clusters of overturned spins, in a pure Ising system the excitation energy of these clusters are degenerate and hence independent of the number of flipped spins, the cost of creating a spin cluster comes only from the domain walls at either end of the cluster. This degeneracy can be lifted by inter-chain interactions, non Ising terms in the Hamiltonian or magnetic fields.
It has been proposed, that the dynamics of the domain walls of the cluster excitations in the presence of a longitudinal magnetic field, can be interpreted as a magnetic analogue of electronic Bloch Oscillations [1], which is the phenomena where a charged particle in a periodic lattice starts to oscillate when a constant electric field is applied. It has been predicted [2] that the signatures of these Magnetic Bloch Oscillations may be observed using inelastic neutron scattering.
We have studied the dynamic behaviour of the cluster excitations in CoCl2*2D2O at the MACS neutron spectrometer [3]. Here I will present our results and how we are able to account for the different features in the excitation spectrums using a Random-Phase Approximation [4], that also accounts for the non one-dimensional magnetic interactions that are nevertheless still present in CoCl2*2D2O.
