A Novel Strongly Spin-Orbit Coupled Quantum Dimer Magnet: Yb2Si2O7

Recently published in Physical Review Letters: The quantum dimer magnet (QDM) is the canonical example of “quantum magnetism”.¬†We report our single crystal neutron diffraction, specific heat, and ultrasound velocity work on a new QDM in the strongly spin-orbit coupled, distorted
