Enhancement of the thermal conductivity in the spin-Peierls system

Keiji Saito, Seiji Miyashita

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We study mechanism of magnetic energy transport, motivated by recent measurements of the thermal conductivity in low-dimensional quantum magnets. We point out a possible mechanism of enhancement of the thermal conductivity in spin-Peierls system, where the magnetic energy transport plays a crucial role. This mechanism gives an interpretation for the recent experiment of CuGeO 3.
