Spiral spin-liquid discovered on a honeycomb lattice

Topic: Materials

Neutron scattering experiments on the van der Waals magnet FeCl3 reveal the first evidence of a spiral spin-liquid state on a honeycomb lattice.

This work demonstrates that spiral spin-liquids can be achieved in two-dimensional systems and provides a promising platform to study the fracton physics and novel spin textures in a new class of materials with the potential to impact the next generation of materials for QIS applications.
