Title: Field-induced Bose-Einstein condensation of interacting dilute magnons in three-dimensional spin systems: A renormalization-group study

Abstract

We use the renormalization-group method to study the magnetic field influence on the Bose-Einstein condensation of interacting dilute magnons in three-dimensional spin systems. We first considered a model with SU(2) symmetry (universality class z=1) and we obtain for the critical magnetic field a power law dependence on the critical temperature, [H{sub c}(T)-H{sub c}(0)]{approx}T{sup 2}. In the case of U(1) symmetry (universality class z=2) the dependence is different, and the magnetic critical field depends linearly on the critical temperature, [H{sub c}(T)-H{sub c}(0)]{approx}T. By considering a more relevant model, which includes also the system's anisotropy, we obtain for the same symmetry class a T{sup 3/2} dependence of the magnetic critical field on the critical temperature. We discuss these theoretical predictions of the renormalization group in connection with experimental results reported in the literature.

  • Based on the realistic spin Hamiltonian for the frustrated quasi-two-dimensional spin-1/2 antiferromagnet Cs{sub 2}CuCl{sub 4}, a three-dimensional spin ordering in the applied magnetic field B near the saturation value B{sub c} is studied within the magnon Bose-Einstein condensation scenario. Using a hard-core boson formulation of the spin model, a strongly anisotropic magnon dispersion in Cs{sub 2}CuCl{sub 4} is calculated. In the dilute magnon limit near B{sub c}, the hard-core boson constraint results in an effective magnon interaction which is treated in the Hartree-Fock approximation. The critical temperature T{sub c} is calculated as a function of the magnetic field B andmore » compared with the phase boundary T{sub c}(B) experimentally determined in Cs{sub 2}CuCl{sub 4} [Phys. Rev. Lett. 95, 127202 (2005)].« less
  • The emergence of a finite staggered magnetization in quantum Heisenberg antiferromagnets subject to a uniform magnetic field can be viewed as Bose-Einstein condensation of magnons. Using nonperturbative results for the infrared behavior of the interacting Bose gas, we present exact results for the staggered spin-spin correlation functions of quantum antiferromagnets in a magnetic field at zero temperature. In particular, we show that in dimensions 1<D{<=}3 the longitudinal dynamic structure factor S{sub parallel}(q,{omega}) describing staggered spin fluctuations in the direction of the staggered magnetization exhibits a critical continuum whose weight can be controlled experimentally by varying the magnetic field.

  • The Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC) of magnetoexcitonic polaritons (magnetopolaritons) in two-dimensional (2D) electron-hole system embedded in a semiconductor microcavity in a high magnetic field B is predicted. There are two physical realizations of 2D electron-hole system under consideration: a graphene layer and quantum well (QW). A 2D gas of magnetopolaritons is considered in a planar harmonic potential trap. Two possible physical realizations of this trapping potential are assumed: inhomogeneous local stress or harmonic electric field potential applied to excitons and a parabolic shape of the semiconductor cavity causing the trapping of microcavity photons. The effective Hamiltonian of the ideal gas ofmore » cavity polaritons in a QW and graphene in a high magnetic field and the BEC temperature as functions of magnetic field are obtained. It is shown that the effective polariton mass M{sub eff} increases with magnetic field as B{sup 1/2}. The BEC critical temperature T{sub c}{sup (0)} decreases as B{sup -1/4} and increases with the spring constant of the parabolic trap. The Rabi splitting related to the creation of a magnetoexciton in a high magnetic field in graphene and QW is obtained. It is shown that Rabi splitting in graphene can be controlled by the external magnetic field since it is proportional to B{sup -1/4} while in a QW the Rabi splitting does not depend on the magnetic field when it is strong.« less
  • Using a finite-temperature path integral Monte Carlo simulation (PIMC) method and finite-size scaling, we have investigated the interaction-induced shift of the phase-transition temperature for Bose-Einstein condensation of homogeneous weakly interacting Bose gases in three dimensions, which is given by a proposed analytical expression T{sub c}=T{sub c}{sup 0}{l_brace}1+c{sub 1}an{sup 1/3}+[c{sub 2}{sup '} ln(an{sup 1/3})+c{sub 2}]a{sup 2}n{sup 2/3}+O(a{sup 3}n){r_brace}, where T{sub c}{sup 0} is the critical temperature for an ideal gas, a is the s-wave scattering length, and n is the number density. We have used smaller number densities and more time slices than in the previous PIMC simulations [Gruter et al.,more » Phys. Rev. Lett. 79, 3549 (1997)] in order to understand the difference in the value of the coefficient c{sub 1} between their results and the (apparently) other reliable results in the literature. Our results show that {l_brace}(T{sub c}-T{sub c}{sup 0})/T{sub c}{sup 0}{r_brace}/(an{sup 1/3}) depends strongly on the interaction strength an{sup 1/3} while the previous PIMC results are considerably flatter and smaller than our results. We obtain c{sub 1}=1.32{+-}0.14, in agreement with results from recent Monte Carlo methods of three-dimensional O(2) scalar {phi}{sup 4} field theory and variational perturbation theory.« less
