Title : Quantum Spin Liquid Physics on a novel shuriken lattice based material 

Abstract: The search for quantum spin liquids is one of the most hotly pursued endeavors in condensed matter physics. In two-dimensions, corner-sharing triangular geometries such as the kagome lattice have proved to be a fertile ground in realizing these exotic phases of quantum matter. In this talk, I will discuss the novel shuriken lattice geometry as an ideal playground for realizing quantum spin liquids, being motivated by its recent first of a kind experimental realization in the spin S = 1/2 system KCu6AlBiO4(SO4)5Cl. Towards understanding the rich quantum phase diagram of Heisenberg spins on the shuriken lattice, we employ state-of-the-art quantum many-body numerical techniques such as variational Monte Carlo (VMC) with versatile Gutzwiller-projected Jastrow wave functions, unconstrained multi-variable variational Monte Carlo (mVMC), and pseudo-fermion/Majorana functional renormalization group (PF/PM-FRG) methods. We establish the presence of a quantum paramagnetic ground state and investigate its nature, by classifying symmetric and chiral quantum spin liquids, and inspecting their instabilities towards competing valence-bond-crystal (VBC) orders. Our VMC analysis reveals that a VBC with a pinwheel structure emerges as the lowest-energy variational ground state, and it is obtained as an instability of the U(1) Dirac spin liquid. Analogous conclusions are drawn from mVMC calculations employing accurate BCS pairing states supplemented by symmetry projectors, which confirm the presence of pinwheel VBC order by a thorough analysis of dimer-dimer correlation functions. Our work highlights the nontrivial role of accounting for further neighbor Heisenberg and/or Dzyaloshinkii-Moriya interactions towards explaining the experimental observations.

English for Materials Scientists 3a
Date: September 13-17,2021 
Lecturer : Prof. Mark D. Sheehan(HANNAN UNIVERSITY)
*************************************************************

♦Course Objective
Proficiency in communicating in English in general, and about science in particular, comes from both knowledge and practice, and this course emphasizes both. By participating in LEGO® Serious Play® workshops, students will examine general principles of good discussion skills, as well as the principles associated specifically with scientific research team discussions. The topics students discuss will be drawn from their diverse backgrounds and research interests.

♦Learning Goals
This course will use the LEGO® Serious Play® method, an innovative, experimental process designed to enhance innovation and communication. This method is a unique way to facilitate meetings, communication and problem solving. The goal is to help students tap into hidden potential, and foster creativity. By participating in LEGO® Serious Play® workshops on various scientific topics, students will develop skills in conversation conventions, and subsequently improve their ability to have discussions on science topics in general and their areas of research in particular. Students will actively participate as they problem-solve together, all while having fun in an environment that encourages free idea generation.

♦Special Note
Each student will receive a LEGO® Serious Play® that has been specially designed for this process. They will build LEGO models and share their ideas.
This course will be conducted in person or online using Zoom depending on the COVID-19 pandemic conditions.

INSD Summer School 2021, Osaka-Tsukuba

July 19th - August 16th

On Zoom

The Institute for NanoScience Design, Osaka University will hold the INSD Summer School 2021 on Nanoscience and Nanotechnology with the combination of on-demand and live styles, since this year the movement restrictions caused by the COVID-19 prevent us to invite foreign lecturers abroad to Osaka.
The Summer School 2021 is composed of three topics of lectures that are chosen from our archives recorded in 2018 and 2019.
Each set of recorded lectures of seven or eight times will be uploaded on the INSD website for about two weeks during July 19th and August 16th.
During this period, participating students should finish to view a series of lectures on-demand style and each time soon after viewing each lecture, send their answer to short questions for the evidence of viewing.
The guidance at the beginning, the office hour and the final test of student presentation will be given as live style with the participation of the lecturers abroad.
The ZOOM or Webex system will be used for the final presentation.
The summer school is aimed at fostering international young talent on nanoscience and nanoengineering.
This program is shared with the University of Tsukuba by connecting these university students.
The lecture documents and recorded lectures will be uploaded on URL:http://www.insd.osaka-u.ac.jp/nano/Homepage(Eng)/index.htm
