Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Nonmagnetic impurity effects on a two-leg quantum spin ladder with a large spin gap of about 400 K were investigated. Surprisingly, only a few % of impurity was found to drive the host gapless and antiferromagnetically ordered at a composition-dependent temperature below 10 K.
