"Entanglement in real magnets"
ABSTRACT:
Quantum entanglement is well-known to have consequences for optics and atomic physics, but is less recognized as impacting the properties of solids. Three examples - a dilute rare earth fluoride(Nature 425, 48), a transition metal oxide chain (Science 317, 1049), and a layered organometallic compound (PNAS 104, 15264), where entanglement matters for three real magnets are described.
