Abstract

We report all phases and corresponding critical lines of the quantum anisotropic transverse XY model with uniform and alternating transverse magnetic fields (ATXY) in the presence of the Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya (DM) interaction by using appropriately chosen order parameters. We prove that when DM interaction is weaker than the anisotropy parameter, it has no effect at all on the zero-temperature states of the XY model with uniform transverse magnetic field (UXY), which is not the case for the ATXY model. However, when DM interaction is stronger than the anisotropy parameter, we show the appearance of a new gapless chiral phase—in the XY model with uniform as well as alternating field. We further observe that first derivatives of nearest neighbor two-site entanglement with respect to magnetic fields can detect all the critical lines present in the system. We also find that the factorization surface at zero temperature present in this model without DM interaction becomes a volume on the introduction of the latter. Moreover, DM interaction turns out to be good to generate bipartite entanglement sustainable at large times, leading to a proof of ergodic nature of bipartite entanglement in this system.
