Theory of the Nuclear Magnetic 1/T1 Relaxation Rate in Conventional and Unconventional Magnets - Springer Theses (Hardback)Andrew Smerald (author)
- We can order this
This thesis develops a detailed, quantitative theory of NMR 1/T1 relaxation rates, and shows for the first time how they could be used to measure the speed at which energy travels in a wide range of magnetic materials.
This theory is used to make predictions for"Quantum Spin Nematics", an exotic form of quantum order analogous to a liquid crystal. In order to do so, it is first necessary to unravel how spin nematics transport energy. This thesis proposes a new way to do this, based on the description of quarks in high-energy physics.
Experiments to test the ideas presented are now underway in laboratories across the world.
