Abstract:

Rare earth pyrochlores present many possible candidates for
hosting Quantum spin liquids (QSL). In this talk, starting with the most well known QSL proposed for these materials-- the Quantum Spin Ice, I will discuss the effect of an external electric field to probe the QSL and drive transition. I will end with a discussion of possible alternatives candidate QSLs beyond Quantum Spin Ice and in particular discuss the properties of a
fermionic QSL and its competition with magnetic phases in context of rare earth pyrochlores.
