NMR measurements were performed on single-crystalline samples of the one-dimensional Heisenberg antiferromagnet (1D HAF) LiCuVO4. We investigated Li7 and V51 NMR spectra, deduced the respective lineshifts K(T), spin-lattice relaxation rates 1T1, and spin-spin relaxation rates 1T2 and 1T2G. The results are compared to theoretical predictions for the relaxation rates 1T1(T) and 1T2G(T) deduced from the dynamic susceptibility χ(q,ω) of a 1D HAF spin chain as proposed by Sachdev [Phys. Rev. B 50, 13006 (1994)]. We document a correspondence between the anisotropic relaxation rates derived from electron paramagnetic resonance linewidth ΔH(T) and nuclear magnetic resonance 1T1(T), respectively, the former being well described in the framework of symmetric anisotropic exchange interactions for LiCuVO4 by Krug von Nidda et al. [Phys. Rev. B 65, 134445 (2002)].

Physics Next Workshops
March 20, 2017

The American Physical Society is initiating a new series of international workshops. These Physics Next workshops will be aimed at fostering new and emerging areas of physics research, focusing on topics that straddle traditional subject boundaries and are starting to “emerge from the noise.”

The first workshop is titled “Physics Next: Materials Design and Discovery,” and will take place on May 15 -17, 2017. More information.
