Gapped SU(3) spin liquid with ${\mathbb{Z}}_{3}$ topological order

Ivana Kurečić, Laurens Vanderstraeten, Norbert Schuch
We construct a topological spin-liquid (TSL) model on the kagome lattice, with $\mathrm{SU}(3)$ symmetry with the fundamental representation at each lattice site, based on projected entangled pair states (PEPS). Using the PEPS framework, we can adiabatically connect the model to a fixed-point model ...
