Quantum criticality of spinons

He, Feng; Jiang, Yuzhu; Yu, Yi-Cong; Lin, H.-Q.; Guan, Xi-Wen


Magnon bound states emerging in one-dimensional (1D) spin chains still lack a rigorous understanding. In this Rapid Communication we show that the length-1 spin strings significantly dominate the critical properties of spinons, magnons, and free fermions in the 1D antiferromagnetic spin-1/2 chain. Using the Bethe ansatz solution, we analytically calculate the scaling functions of the thermal and magnetic properties of the model, providing a rigorous understanding of the quantum criticality of...[Show more]
