Finite-temperature dynamics in low-dimensional quantum magnets

Salvatore Manmana (University of Göttingen, Germany)

Quantum magnetic materials are a fascinating research topic, which  explores novel behavior in quantum systems caused by strong  correlations. In my talk, I will review basic properties of such strongly correlated quantum magnets. A particular focus is given to  dynamical properties, which reveal the elementary excitations and their  properties. An interesting aspect here is the effect of temperature.  This is discussed for one-dimensional systems. In particular, the finite-temperature dynamics in the antiferromagnetic spin-one chain is discussed, which considerably is one of the most fundamental quantum many-body systems, with symmetry protected topological order in the ground state. Increasing the temperature leads to additional structures  in the dynamical response functions, which we propose to measure in experiments.
