Nonlinear susceptibility of the dipolar glass

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


Glassy behavior is seen in various systems, among which are structural glasses, electron glasses, spin glasses and electric dipolar glasses. The latter two seem to share the same effective Hamiltonian. However, experimentally some fundmental differences are seen between these two systems, most notably the divergence of the nonlinear susceptibility in the spin glass system and its absence in the electric dipolar glass. Here we discuss the similarities and differences between these two systems leading to the above mentioned phenomenon.
