We investigate pairwise non-classical correlations measured by one-way quantum deficit as well as quantum coherence in the XY spin-1/2 chain in a transverse magnetic field for both zero and finite temperatures. Analytical and numerical results are presented. In the case of zero temperature, it is exhibited that one-way quantum deficit can characterize quantum phase transition as well as quantum coherence. We find that these measures have obviously the critical point at λ = 1. When λ 1, one-way quantum deficit has analytical expression which coincides with relative entropy of coherence. We also study XX model and Ising chain in the finite temperature.
