We consider the effects of toroidal moment corrections to the acoustic susceptibility tensor of a material that is simultaneously ferroelectric and a canted antiferromagnet (multiferroic).
Instead of lining up neatly (as in magnets and in an antiferromagnet, left, seen in superconductors), the spins move around uncomfortably thanks to quantum fluctuations that keep them twitching even at absolute zero.
An antiferromagnet is a special kind of ferrimagnet where adjacent spin moments completely cancel.
For our experimental setup, in which the applied field is parallel to the gamma-ray direction, this is, the theoretical area ratio for an antiferromagnet in the spin-flop state.
We focus on itinerant ferromagnetic quantum critical systems and geometrically frustrated novel triangular corner sharing kagome antiferromagnet and edge sharing Mott insulators, which display exotic properties stemming from quantum fluctuations and are robust to perturbations.
