[en] Empirical correlations in isotopic differentials of charge radii have been combined with the differentials for data on the energy of the first excited 2+ state, on R4/2=E(4+1)/E(2+1), on the transition rate from the 2+1 to the ground state and the two neutron separation energies. These differential results exhibit remarkable consistency with each other although, individually, structure and/or mass observables reveal different patterns. In the past, there are number of valuable studies of isotope shifts comparable to different observables but not the direct correlations as will be presented here. We show that a single general pattern occurs for five different observables for each mass region. This helps one to follow the structural changes more easily by looking at one type of pattern. This study may be a guide for both experimental studies, future measurements in charge radii, masses, spectroscopic observables, and theoretical studies.
[en] The Kitaev-Heisenberg model is source of a topological quantum spin liquid with Majorana fermions and gauge flux excitations as fractional quasiparticles. The material -RuCl is composed of weakly van der Waals bound honeycomb layers of edge sharing RuCl octahedra which has recently emerged as a prime candidate for realising such physics. We studied -RuCl by means of thermal transport measurements, a valuable tool to probe elementary excitations of systems with low dimensional spin structure. While the in-plane, longitudinal heat transport is governed by heat conduction of phonons that strongly scatter off the magnetic excitations present in the system, studying the thermal Hall effect (Rhighi-Leduc effect) opens up a new path towards detecting a direct contribution of unconventional magnetic excitations to entropy transport. We have observed a sizeable transversal heat conductivity , the agreement of which with the theoretical predictions for the pure Kitaev model being suggestive of heat transport by fractionalised quasiparticles in -RuCl.
