PressureTuned Classical–Quantum Crossover in Magnetic FieldInduced Quantum Phase Transitions of a TriangularLattice Antiferromagnet
202495
The correspondence principle states that as quantum numbers approach infinity, the nature of a system described by quantum mechanics should match that described by classical mechanics. Quantum phenomena, such as quantum superposition and quantum correlation, generally become unobservable when a system approaches this regime. Conversely, as quantum numbers decrease, classical descriptions give way to observable quantum effects. The external approach to classical–quantum crossover has attracted research interest. This study aims to demonstrate a method for achieving such control in materials.
