Partial disorder in an Ising-spin Kondo lattice model on a triangular lattice

Ishizuka, H.; Motome, Y.

Physical Review Letters 108(25): 257205

2012

A phase diagram of an Ising-spin Kondo lattice model on a triangular lattice near 1/3 filling is investigated by Monte Carlo simulation. We identify a partially disordered phase with the coexistence of magnetic order and paramagnetic moments, which was unstable in two-dimensional Ising models with localized spins only. The partial disorder emerges in the competing regime between a two-sublattice stripe phase and three-sublattice ferrimagnetic phase, at finite temperatures above an electronic phase separation. The peculiar magnetic structure accompanies a charge order and develops a gap in the electronic structure. The results manifest a crucial role of the nonperturbative interplay between spin and charge degrees of freedom in stabilizing the partial disorder.
