Study of the Shastry Sutherland Model Using Multi-scale Entanglement
Renormalization Ansatz

Jie Lou, Takafumi Suzuki, Kenji Harada, Naoki Kawashima
We performed variational calculation based on the multi-scale entanglemnt renormalization ansatz, for the antiferromagnetic Heisenberg model on a Shastry Sutherland lattice (SSL). Our results show that at coupling ratio J'/J= 0.687(3), the system undergoes a quantum phase transition from the orthogonal dimer order to the plaquette valence bond solid phase, which then transits into the antiferromagnetic order above J'/J=0.75. In the presence of an external magnetic field, our calculations show clear evidences of various magnetic plateaux in systems with different coupling ratios range from 0.5 to 0.69. Our calculations are not limited to the small coupling ratio region, and we are able to show strong evidence of the presence of several supersolid phases, including ones above 1/2 and 1/3 plateaux. Such supersolid phases, which feature the coexistence of compressible superfluidity and crystalline long range order in triplet excitations, emerge at relatively large coupling ratio (J'/J>0.5). A schematic phase diagram of the SSL model in the presence of magnetic field is provided.
