Correlated Electron Systems Pose Basic Questions in CMT

- FROM ATOMS TO SOLIDS
- How to describe electron from localized to itinerant ?
- How do the physical properties evolve ?

DMFT Spectral Function Photoemission and correlations

Georges Kotliar (1992)DMFT approximate quantum solid as atom in a medium

10

Self consistency for V and e

(GW) DFT+DMFT: determine H[k] and density and S self consitently from a functional

and obtain total energies.

Electronic structure problem: compute <r|G|r’> and <r|W|r’> given structure

Chitra and Kotliar PRB 62, 12715 (2000) PRB (2001)P.Sun and GK (2005) Zein et.al.PRL 96, 226403 (2006)). See also Bierman Aryasetiwan and Georges.

Introduce Notion of Local Greens functions, Wloc, Gloc G=Gloc+Gnonloc .

Ir,>=|R, r,> Gloc=G(R r, R’ r’) dR,R’

“ Local” can mean a small cluster of sites or multiple unit cells. Cellular DMFT cluster DMFT.

DMFT mapping site or cluster of sites in a self consistent medium. Quantum impurity model, gives S and P.Need accurate impurity solvers..

Approximate the self energy of a subset “ uncorrelated electrons “ by dft Vxc(r)d(r,r’) replace W(w) by a static U acting only on the “correlated “ set, which we treat by DMFT.

LDA+DMFT . V. Anisimov, A. Poteryaev, M. Korotin, A. Anokhin and G. Kotliar, J. Phys. Cond. Mat. 35, 7359 (1997) Review: G. Kotliar S. Savrasov K Haule O Parcollet V Oudovenko C. Marianetti RMP (2006)

Summary: part 1

Spectral function in DMFT analogous to density in DFT

Self consistent Impurity problem, natural language to describe localization/delocalization phenomena. combines atomic physics and band theory

Thermoelectric Figure of Merit

- ZT = T S2 /kr

k = kel + kLattice

Best Case, Suppose kLattice = 0

ZT = T S2 /kel r

- Wiedemann-Franz law
- L0 = kel r/T= 2.4 x 10-8 V2/K2
- or ZT = S2/ L0
- which means that for ZT=1,
- or S > 156 mV/K

Basic Scale k/e 86 10-6 V /K

- Why are correlations stronger near a band insulator than near a Mott insulator ?
- U < Uc2 , hole moves in a restricted space (where potential is low) and is strongly correlated.
- DMFT calculations account for the Curie Weiss phase and the Fermi liquid phase

Conclusions

- DMFT as a technique, makes contact with experiments, total energies, phonons, photoemission,ARPES,optics,…
- Concepts “ cell “in a quantum medium, spectral function, temperature dependent electronic structure, transfer of spectral weight.
- Method under development, but already gives some exciting results.
- Ultimate goal, is to be able to focus on deviations from DMFT.

Conclusions

- Correlations in sp electrons (worse case ) require 3 coordination spheres.
- 4f’s single site works reasonably well for the Ir 115. Quantum critical point : 2 site DMFT ?
- 5f’s Pu as a mixed valent metal. Cm RKKY metal.
- 3d’s. High Tc. Nodal antinodal dichotomy, novel type of Mott transition. Two gap scenario in SC state ?

- Clear theoretical problems.
- The techniques used for titanites should apply to cobaltites and misfit cobaltates.
- Disorder. Electron eelctron interactions. Importance of detailed modelling.
- The techniques used for 115’s should be useful for SbF. Substittutions. Decrease in thermal conductivity. Tricks ?

- Actinides, phonons, role of multiplets, spectral signatures, Pu as mixed valent metal.
- Cobaltates, key role of inhomogeneities bringing correlations near a (correlated) insulator. DMFT treatment of an alloy.

Natural consequence of the conclusions on the model Hamiltonian level. We had two solutions at the same U, one metallic and one insulating. Relaxing the volume expands the insulator and contract the metal.
