The recently published paper Emergence of spin singlets with inhomogeneous gaps in the kagome lattice Heisenberg antiferromagnets Zn-barlowite and herbertsmithite (J. Wang et al., Nature Physics 2021) in Nature Physics is accompanied by Martin Klanjšek‘s News & Views article Singlets singled out (M. Klanjšek, Nature Physics 2021). A highly recommended read!
Origin of Magnetic Ordering in a Structurally Perfect Quantum Kagome Antiferromagnet
Phys. Rev. Lett. 125, 027203 (2020)
In collaboration with prof. Peter Prelovšek from the Department of Theoretical Physics and researchers from United Kingdom, USA and China, we have published a paper entitled “Origin of Magnetic Ordering in a Structurally Perfect Quantum Kagome Antiferromagnet” in Physical Review Letters.
Odpira se nam prosto mesto za mladega raziskovalca pod mentorstvom Mateja Preglja z začetkom oktobra 2020. Iščemo vedoželjnega, delovnega, predvsem pa radovednega kandidata, ki nima strahu pred novimi in še nerešenimi fizikalnimi ugankami.

Each year at the end of March the Jožef Stefan Institute awards the Jožef Stefan Golden Emblem Prizes for winning PhD dissertations in the fields of natural sciences, medicine and biotechnology. This year, one of three awarded works is the PhD thesis of Dr. Matjaž Gomilšek, entitled “Quantum Spin Liquids on Geometrically Frustrated Kagome Lattices“.
Gapless ground state in the archetypal quantum kagome antiferromagnet ZnCu3(OH)6Cl2
Nature Physics (2020)
A team of researchers from France, India, and Slovenia was able to demonstrate the absence of a spin gap in the ground state of the iconic kagome lattice material herbertsmithite.
