The quantum phases in a spin-1 skewed ladder system formed by alternately fusing five- and seven-membered rings are studied numerically using the exact diagonalization technique up to 16 spins and using the density matrix renormalization group method for larger system sizes. The ladder has a fixed isotropic antiferromagnetic (AF) exchange interaction () between the nearest-neighbor spins along the legs and a varying isotropic AF exchange interaction () along the rungs. As a function of , the system shows many interesting ground states (gs) which vary from different types of nonmagnetic and ferrimagnetic gs. The study of various gs properties such as spin gap, spin-spin correlations, spin density, and bond order reveal that the system has four distinct phases, namely, the AF phase at small ; the ferrimagnetic phase with gs spin for and with for , where is the number of unit cells; and a reentrant nonmagnetic phase at . The system also shows the presence of spin current at specific values due to simultaneous breaking of both reflection and spin parity symmetries. © 2021 American Physical Society
