We investigate quantum phase transitions in XY spin models using Dzyaloshinsky-Moriya (DM) interactions. We identify the quantum critical points via quantum Fisher information and quantum coherence, finding that higher DM couplings suppress quantum phase transitions. However, quantum coherence (characterized by the l1-norm and relative entropy) decreases as the DM coupling increases. Herein, we present both analytical and numerical results.
