Dynamics influencing ordering of a s=3 Ising antiferromagnetic on a triangular lattice.

GIllian A. Gehring, Jenny Poulton, Stuart George, Christopher Bentham

Antiferromagnetically coupled Ising s =3 spins on a triangular lattice are very close to ordering at zero temperature. The low temperature behaviour of a triangular lattice with Ising spins s =3 has been simulated by using both Glauber and Kawasaki dynamics. The formation of misfit clusters, which are essential for destabilizing the ordered state, are inhibited by the use of Kawasaki dynamics. The sublattice susceptibilities and the sublattice order parameter are found to depend qualitatively on the dynamics used so that robust ordering occurs when Kawasaki dynamics are employed. The thermal behaviour that is found for the spin model with Kawasaki dynamics gives insight into the observed ordering of side chains seen in a tetraphilic liquid crystal.
