Quantum Phase Diagram of an Exactly Solved Mixed Spin Ladder

Batchelor, Murray; Guan, Xi-Wen; Oelkers, Norman; Ying, Zu-Jian


We investigate the quantum phase diagram of the exactly solved mixed spin-(1/2,1) ladder via the thermodynamic Bethe ansatz (TBA). In the absence of a magnetic field the model exhibits three quantum phases associated with su(2), su(4), and su(6) symmetries. In the presence of a strong magnetic field, there is a third and full saturation magnetization plateaux within the strong antiferromagnetic rung coupling regime. Gapless and gapped phases appear in turn as the magnetic field increases. For...[Show more]
