    • Emergent Fields, Flat Bands and Phase Competition: A Study in Magnetic Pyrochlore Systems 

      Mukherjee, Aritro (University of Waterloo, 2020-09-18)
      We investigate spins models on the pyrochlore and the breathing pyrochlore lattice. Specifically, we study polarized neutron scattering in classical spin ice modelled via Ising spins with anti-ferromagnetic interactions. ...
    • A Study of Order-by-Disorder Phenomenon in Frustrated Magnetic Systems Near Criticality 

      Javanparast, Behnam (University of Waterloo, 2014-04-25)
      Order-by-disorder is the phenomenon of the selection of a long-ranged ordered state by fluctuations in a many-body system. This mechanism, at first sight, seems paradoxical, since fluctuations (disorder) intuitively tend ...
    • Ultra-low temperature dilatometry 

      Dunn, John Leonard (University of Waterloo, 2010-10-28)
      This thesis presents research of two novel magnetic materials, LiHoF4 and Tb2Ti2O7. Experiments were performed at low temperatures and in an applied magnetic field to study thermal expansion and magnetostriction using a ...
