Mimicry of quantum spin liquid in a trigonal compound, CuGaInO4
(Sungwon Yoon)

    This work, as conducted by proposal M2019, aims to identify the nature of the magnetic ground state of a frustrated magnet with the trigonal structure, CuGaInO4. Due to the site disorders between Cu2+ and Ga3+ ions in a quasi-two dimensional honeycomb layer, bond disorders on the background of the quantum spin liquid state is revealed. Microscopic investigations through the surface muons are expected to provide an information of the magnetic ground state and the evolution of magnetic correlations through the successive crossovers.
