Quadrupole Arrangements and the Ground State of Solid Hydrogen

By Sebastiaan Van De Bund and Graeme Ackland
The electric quadrupole-quadrupole (Eqq\mathcal{E}_{qq}) interaction is believed to play an important role in the broken symmetry transition from Phase I to II in solid hydrogen. To evaluate this, we study structures adopted by purely classical quadrupoles using Markov Chain Monte Carlo simulations of fcc and hcp quadrupolar lattices. Both undergo... Show more
