  • Abstract

The thermodynamic properties and some critical properties of the planar rotator model with chiral Dzyaloshinsky-Moriya (DM) interaction on triangular lattice are analyzed using a hybrid Monte Carlomethod. It has been shown that there is a XYlike Berezinskii-Kosterlitz-Thouless (BKT) phase transition in this model. The ground state of this spiral system and the effects of size mismatch are also discussed.
