Magnetization plateau of the quantum spin nanotube

Okamoto, Kiyomi*; Sato, Masahiro*; Okunishi, Koichi*; Sakai, Toru; Itoi, Chigaku*

The magnetization process of the 3-leg quantum spin nanotube is investigated by the numerical diagonalization of finite-size clusters and the density matrix renormalization group method. It is found that the magnetization plateau appears at 1/3 of the saturation magnetization for sufficiently large interchain coupling. In addition we find that in the presence of asymmetric lattice distortion, there are two different mechanisms of the magnetization plateau formation. We also successfully present a phase diagram of the magnetization plateau.
