Title: Ising order in a magnetized Heisenberg chain subject to a uniform Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction

Abstract

We report a combined analytical and density matrix renormalized group study of the antiferromagnetic XXZ spin-1/2 Heisenberg chain subject to a uniform Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya (DM) interaction and a transverse magnetic eld. The numerically determined phase diagram of this model, which features two ordered Ising phases and a critical Luttinger liquid one with fully broken spin-rotational symmetry, agrees well with the predictions of Garate and Affleck [Phys. Rev. B 81, 144419 (2010)]. We also con rm the prevalence of the Nz Neel Ising order in the regime of comparable DM and magnetic field magnitudes.
