Triangular and kagome magnets serve as an experimental platform for realizing entangled spin states, including the long-sought quantum spin liquid. In this project, we will prepare candidate materials containing rare-earth metals as magnetic ions and comprehensively study their spin dynamics for a direct experimental witness of the underlying entanglement. We will further address the dichotomy between structurally disordered and quantum disordered states and reveal the effect of structural randomness on the quantum spin liquid.
