Novel ordering phenomena in frustrated quantum magnets

SummarySpin systems are mostly known for collective magnetic ordering behavior at low temperature. In this brief review two exotic possibilities for novel ground states driven by the interplay of magnetic frustration and quantum fluctuations are discussed together with prospects to experimentally observe these phases.
