Renormalization group analysis of dipolar Heisenberg model on square lattice

We present a detailed functional renormalization group analysis of spin-1/2 dipolar Heisenberg model on square lattice. This model is similar to the well-known J(1)-J(2) model and describes the pseudospin degrees of freedom of polar molecules confined in deep optical lattice with long-range anisotropic dipole-dipole interactions. Previous study of this model based on tensor network ansatz indicates a paramagnetic ground state for certain dipole tilting angles which can be tuned in experiments to control the exchange couplings. The tensor ansatz formulated on a small cluster unit cell is inadequate to describe the spiral order, and therefore the phase diagram at high azimuthal tilting angles remains undetermined. Here, we obtain the full phase diagram of the model from numerical pseudofermion functional renormalization group calculations. We show that an extended quantum paramagnetic phase is realized between the Neel and stripe/spiral phases. In this region, the spin susceptibility flows smoothly down to the lowest numerical renormalization group scales with no sign of divergence or breakdown of the flow, in sharp contrast to the flow towards the long-range-ordered phases. Our results provide further evidence that the dipolar Heisenberg model is a fertile ground for quantum spin liquids.


Weight discrimination of boolean functions with quantum computation
Uyanık, Kıvanç; Turgut, Sadi; Department of Physics (2014)
In this thesis, we investigate solvability of the weight decision problem of two Boolean functions by quantum computation. In particular, we study this problem first from a general quantum operator discrimination perspective and second from a direct algorithmic viewpoint. As quantum operator discrimination approach is concerned, we give two different formulations for two different cases. In one, the unitary transformations that correspond to the function evaluation are applied in a parallel fashion and in t...
Energetics and structural stability of lanthanum microclusters
Erkoç, Şakir; Bastug, T; Hirata, M; Tachimori, S (1999-12-03)
The energetics and the structural stability of lanthanum microclusters (La-n) have been investigated by performing relativistic density functional calculations and molecular dynamics (MD) simulations. An empirical potential energy function has been parameterised for a lanthanum element by using the dimer interaction potential energy profile of La-2, which is calculated by relativistic density functional method. Stable structures of the microclusters for n = 3-13 have been determined by MD simulation and ele...
Modeling of the nonlinear behavior of steel framed structures with semi rigid connections
Sarıtaş, Afşin; Özel, Halil Fırat (null; 2015-07-21)
A mixed formulation frame finite element with internal semi-rigid connections is presented for the nonlinear analysis of steel structures. Proposed element provides accurate responses for spread of inelasticity along element length by monitoring the nonlinear responses of several crosssections, where spread of inelasticity over each section is captured with fiber discretization. Each material point on the section considers inelastic coupling between normal stress and shear stress. The formulation of the ele...
Understanding the Effects of Ion-Exchange in Titanosilicate ETS-10: A Joint Theoretical and Experimental Study
Koc, Mehmet; Galioglu, Sezin; Toffoli, Daniele; Toffoli, Hande; Akata Kurç, Burcu (2014-11-27)
Density functional theory (DFT) calculations within the gradient-corrected approximation (GGA) were carried out on two models of Engelhard titanosilicate (ETS-10) with the aim to elucidate the effect of ion exchange on the structural and electronic properties of the TiOTi quantum wire. The partial and full exchange of Na+ cations with alkaline, earth-alkaline, and transition metal ions have been investigated. The theoretical results have been complemented by experimental X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Raman da...
Full-wave optimization of three-dimensional photonic-crystal structures involving dielectric rods
KARAOSMANOGLU, Bariscan; ERAY, Hamza; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2018-07-01)
We present rigorous optimization and design of three-dimensional photonic-crystal (PhC) structures involving finite dielectric rods. These types of PhCs are known to be useful in diverse applications, such as imaging, power focusing, filtering, and pattern shaping at optical frequencies. Without resorting to their two-dimensional models, which are commonly used in the literature, we consider PhCs as three-dimensional structures, whose electromagnetic characteristics are optimized via genetic algorithms inte...
