Dimensionality is a critical factor in determining the properties of solids and is an apparent built- in character of the crystal structure. However, it can be an emergent and tunable property in geometrically frustrated spin systems. Here, we study the spin dynamics of the tetrahedral cluster antiferromagnet, pharmacosiderite, via muon spin resonance and neutron scattering. We find that the spin correlation exhibits a two-dimensional characteristic despite the isotropic connectivity of tetrahedral clusters made of spin 5/2 Fe$$^{3+}$$ ions in the three-dimensional cubic crystal, which we ascribe to two-dimensionalisation by geometrical frustration based on spin wave calculations. Moreover, we suggest that even one-dimensionalisation occurs in the decoupled layers, generating low-energy and one-dimensional excitation modes, causing large spin fluctuation in the classical spin system.

Glassy magnetic behavior has been observed in a wide range of crystalline magnetic materials called spin glass. Here, we report spin glass behavior in a structural glass of a magnetic ionic liquid, C4mimFeCl$$_{4}$$. Magnetization measurements demonstrate that an antiferromagnetic ordering occurs at $$T_{rm N}$$ = 2.3 K in the crystalline state, while a spin glass transition occurs at $$T_{rm SG}$$ = 0.4 K in the structural glass state. In addition, localized magnetic excitations were found in the spin glass state by inelastic neutron scattering, in contrast to spin-wave excitations in the ordered phase of the crystalline sample. The localized excitation was scaled by the Bose population factor below $$T_{rm SG}$$ and gradually disappeared above $$T_{rm SG}$$. This feature is highly reminiscent of boson peaks commonly observed in structural glasses. We suggest the "magnetic" boson peak to be one of the inherent dynamics of a spin glass state.

典型的なネットワークイオン性液体ZnCl$$_2$$の第1およびプレ回折ピークでの微視的な構造緩和を中性子スピンエコー分光により調べた。第1構造ピークの緩和はプレピークのものより速く、活性化エネルギーは約33%高い。融点より十分高温においても、伸長指数関数で記述される緩和が観測された。驚くべきことに、とくに第1ピークにおいて、非指数関数性パラメータは冷却とともに急激に増加し、$$T_{rm m}$$に向かって緩和は伸長指数型から指数型へと変わる。これらの結果は、過冷却状態の典型的なガラス的ダイナミクスが平衡液体で現れること、2つの異なる空間スケールの運動の活性化エネルギーが冷却に伴うネットワーク構造の形成と関連していることを示唆する。

The long carrier lifetime and defect tolerance in metal halide perovskites (MHPs) are major contributors to the superb performance of MHP optoelectronic devices. Large polarons were reported to be responsible for the long carrier lifetime. Yet microscopic mechanisms of the large polaron formation, including the so-called phonon melting, are still under debate. Here, time-of-flight inelastic neutron scattering experiments and first-principles density-functional theory calculations were employed to investigate the lattice vibrations (or phonon dynamics) in methylammonium lead iodide, a prototypical example of MHPs. Our findings are that optical phonons lose temporal coherence gradually with increasing temperature which vanishes at the orthorhombic-to-tetragonal structural phase transition. Surprisingly, however, we found that the spatial coherence is still retained throughout the decoherence process. We argue that the temporally decoherent and spatially coherent vibrations contribute to the formation of large polarons in this metal halide perovskite.

"Water-in-salt" (WIS) and "water-in-bisalt" (WIBS) electrolytes have recently been developed for Li-ion batteries. We report Quasielastic Neutron Scattering (QENS) measurements on solutions of a WIS electrolyte at two concentrations, and a WIBS electrolyte at one concentration. The data were Fourier transformed to obtain experimental intermediate scattering functions (ISFs) and compared with corresponding quantities obtained from Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulations. Both QENS and MD ISFs could be fitted well by a single stretched exponential function to obtain apparent translational diffusion coefficients for the water molecules. The QENS values agree well with the MD simulations for the solutions of a WIS electrolyte at two concentrations, but MD simulations predict a slower relaxation of water compared to QENS for the WIBS electrolyte. Comparison of the incoherent and coherent scattering reveals much faster water dynamics compared with structural relaxation of the ionic framework.

We investigated the low-energy incommensurate (IC) magnetic fluctuations in Sr$$_2$$RuO$$_4$$ by the high-resolution inelastic neutron scattering measurements and random phase approximation (RPA) calculations. We observed a spin resonance with energy of $$hbar omega_{rm res}0.56$$ meV centered at a characteristic wavevector $$Q_{rm res}=(0.3,0.3,0.5)$$. The resonance energy corresponds well to the superconducting gap 2$$Delta$$ = 0.56 meV estimated by the tunneling spectroscopy. The spin resonance shows the $$L$$ modulation with a maximum at around $$L = 0.5$$. The $$L$$ modulated intensity of the spin resonance and our RPA calculations indicate that the superconducting gaps regarding the quasi-one-dimensional $$alpha$$ and $$beta$$ sheets at the Fermi surfaces have the horizontal line nodes. These results may set a strong constraint on the pairing symmetry of Sr$$_2$$RuO$$_4$$. We also discuss the implications on possible superconducting order parameters.

The dimerized quantum magnet BaCuSi$$_2$$O$$_6$$ was proposed as an example of "dimensional reduction" arising near the magnetic-field-induced quantum critical point (QCP) due to perfect geometrical frustration of its interbilayer interactions. We demonstrate by high-resolution neutron spectroscopy experiments that the effective intrabilayer interactions are ferromagnetic, thereby excluding frustration. We explain the apparent dimensional reduction by establishing the presence of three magnetically inequivalent bilayers, with ratios $$3 colon 2 colon 1$$, whose differing interaction parameters create an extra field-temperature scaling regime near the QCP with a nontrivial but nonuniversal exponent. We demonstrate by detailed quantum Monte Carlo simulations that the magnetic interaction parameters we deduce can account for all the measured properties of BaCuSi$$_2$$O$$_6$$, opening the way to a quantitative understanding of nonuniversal scaling in any modulated layered system.

We report on incoherent quasielastic neutron scattering measurements examining a self-diffusion process in two types of glass-forming liquids, namely a molecular liquid (3-methylpentane) and an ionic liquid (1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium bis(trifluoromethanesulfonyl)imide). We have experimentally demonstrated that both liquids exhibit two crossovers in the momentum transfer ($$Q$$) dependence of the self-correlation function, which is basically described by the stretched exponential function, $$exp [-(t/tau)^beta]$$. The first crossover point ($$Q approx 0.2$$~$AA$^{-1}$$) corresponds to a crossover from Fickian ($$beta = 1$$) to non-Fckian ($$beta ne 1$$) diffusion attributed to dynamical correlation. On the other hand, the second one at $$Q approx 0.8$$~$AA$^{-1}$$ is associated with the crossover from Gaussian to non-Gaussian behavior. It is remarkable that the stretching exponent $$beta$$ gradually changes in between the two crossover points. We consider that the two crossovers are the universal feature for glass-forming liquids.

Alkyl-methyl-imidazolium ionic liquids C$$n$$mimX ($$n$$: alkyl-carbon number, X: anion) have short-range layer structures consisting of ionic and neutral (alkylchain) domains. To investigate the temperature dependences of the interlayer, interionic group, and inter-alkylchain correlations, we have measured the neutron diffraction (ND) of C$$n$$mimPF$$_6$$ ($$n$$ = 16, 9.5, 8). The quasielastic neutron scattering (QENS) of C16mimPF$$_6$$ was also measured to study the dynamics of each correlation. C16mimPF$$_6$$ shows a first-order transition between the liquid (L) and liquid crystalline (LC) phases at $$T_{rm c}$$ = 394 K. C8mimPF$$_6$$ exhibits a glass transition at $$T_{rm g}$$ = 200 K. C9.5mimPF$$_6$$ has both transitions at $$T_{rm c}$$ = 225 K and $$T_{rm g}$$ = 203 K. In the ND experiments, all samples exhibit three peaks corresponding to the correlations mentioned above. The widths of the interlayer peak at ca. 0.2 $AA$^{-1}$$ changed drastically at the L-LC transitions, while the interionic peaks at ca. 1 $AA$^{-1}$$ exhibited a small jump at $$T_{rm c}$$. The peak position and area of the three peaks did not change much at the transition. The structural changes were minimal at $$T_{rm g}$$. The QENS experiments demonstrated that the relaxation time of the interlayer motion increased tenfold at $$T_{rm c}$$, while those of other motions were monotonous in the whole temperature region. The structural and dynamical changes are characteristic of the L-LC transition in imidazolium-based ionic liquids.

We report recent issues that have been encountered by AMATERAS, which is a cold-neutron disk-chopper spectrometer installed at the Materials and Life Science Experimental Facility at J-PARC. After the last ICANS meeting held in 2014, AMATERAS has continued its user program. On the other hand, the spectrometer has faced several problems, such as a weak shield at the beam dump, failure of one of the chopper disks and many such problems, which we are currently investigating. Further, several instrumental improvements have been performed, such as background reduction, fixing badly designed parts and other such improvements. Our extensive experience obtained in the period of more than 7 years on one of the world's first pulse-shaping chopper spectrometers may help other researchers who are operating or planning to construct similar spectrometers.

中性子分光法を用いて、バルク及びナノ結晶パラジウム中の水素原子の振動状態を、広いエネルギー領域($$0 le hbar omega le 300$$meV)について調べた。バルクのパラジウム水素化物では、水素の振動励起は量子調和振動子(QHO)で大まかに記述された。一方、直径8nmのナノ結晶パラジウム水素化物では、付加的な振動励起が80meV以上のエネルギー領域に観測された。この付加的な振動励起のエネルギーと強度はQHOでは説明できず、非調和性の強いトランペット型ポテンシャルにおける振動と記述された。この付加的な励起は、表面効果により安定化されたサブ表面(表面下2-3層)の正四面体サイトに配置された水素原子の振動だと考えられる。本研究は、金属ナノ粒子中の水素の振動を明瞭に検知した初めての実験的研究である。
