Title Competing magnetic and nematic phases of a highly-frustrated spin-1 triangular lattice model
Abstract I will discuss my work (2206.04087) on a highly frustrated spin-1 model on the triangular lattice, with nearest- and next-nearest-neighbor antiferromagnetic S.S interactions and nearest-neighbor (S.S)^2 interactions. Using DMRG, we find three magnetically ordered phases, namely 120∘ spiral order, stripe order, and tetrahedral order, as well as two spin nematic phases: ferroquadrupolar and antiferroquadrupolar. While our data could be consistent with a spin liquid phase between the 120∘ spiral and antiferroquadrupolar orders, the more likely scenario is a direct continuous transition between these two orders.
