BaCo$$_{2}$$V$$_{2}$$O$$_{8}$$ consists of Co chains, in which Co$$^{2+}$$ ion carries a fictitious spin $$frac{1}{2}$$ with Ising anisotropy. We performed elastic and inelastic neutron scattering experiments in BaCo$$_{2}$$V$$_{2}$$O$$_{8}$$ in magnetic field perpendicular to the $$c$$ axis which is the chain direction. With applying magnetic field along the $$a$$ axis at 3.5 K, the antiferromagnetic order with the easy axis along the $$c$$ axis, observed in zero magnetic field, is completely suppressed at 8 T, while the magnetic field gradually induces an antiferromagnetic order with the spin component along the $$b$$ axis. We also studied magnetic excitations as a function of transverse magnetic field. The lower boundary of the spinon excitations splits gradually with increasing magnetic field. The overall feature of the magnetic excitation spectra in magnetic field is reproduced by the theoretical calculation based on the spin $$frac{1}{2}$$ $$XXZ$$ antiferromagnetic chain model, which predicts that the dynamic magnetic structure factor of the spin component along the chain direction is enhanced and that along the field direction has clear incommensurate correlations.
