ANISOTROPY INFLUENCE ON THE STRIPED ANTIFERROMAGNETISM OF A FRUSTRATED HEISENBERG MODEL: AN APPLICATION TO IRON PNICTIDE MATERIALS

Мilan Pantić, Milica Rutonjski, Petar Mali, Milica Pavkov Hrvojević, Slobodan Radošević

Abstract


Motivated by several experimental studies of magnetic compounds related to iron pnictides, we examine thermodynamic properties of anisotropic J1a - J1b - Jc - J2 Heisenberg antiferromagnetic model. Our calculations are based on the two-time temperature Green's functions within several well-known decoupling approximations. We obtain excitation spectrum, correlation functions and the analytic expression for the critical temperature and compare our results to the existing experimental data. Results presented here could be of a great importance in the further investigations of similar magnetic systems.

Keywords


Frustrated Heisenberg J1a - J1b - Jc - J2 antiferromagnet, iron pnictides, spin anisotropy, spin stripe phase, neel temperature.
