(1995) Gap modes in Ca-doped Y2BaNiO5 Magnetic DOS as long as Ca-doped Y2BaNiO5 Conclusions: Dilute impurities in the Haldane spin chain create sub-gap composite spin degrees of freedom. Edge states have an AFM wave function that extends into the bulk over distances of order the Haldane length. Holes in Y2-xCaxBaNiO5 are surrounded by AFM spin polaron with central phase shift of p Neutron scattering can detect the structure of composite impurity spins in gapped quantum magnets. The technique may be applicable to probe impurities in other gapped systems eg. high TC superconductors. Microscopic details of gapped spin systems may help underst in addition to related systems where there is no direct info.
