Electrons in a Solid:the Standard Model

Band Theory: electrons as waves.

Landau Fermi Liquid Theory.

Rigid bands , optical transitions , thermodynamics, transport………

- Quantitative Tools. Density Functional Theory+Perturbation Theory.

Success story : Density Functional Linear Response

Tremendous progress in ab initio modelling of lattice dynamics

& electron-phonon interactions has been achieved

(Review: Baroni et.al, Rev. Mod. Phys, 73, 515, 2001)

The success of the standard model does NOT extend to strongly correlated systems . Anomalies cannot be understood within a RIGID BAND PICTURE,e.g. very resistive metals

C. Urano et. al. PRL 85, 1052 (2000)

Strong Correlation Anomalies : temperature dependence of the integrated optical weight up to high frequency. Violations of low energy optical sum rule. Breakdown of rigid band picture.

Breakdown of standard model

- Large metallic resistivities exceeding the Mott limit. Maximum metallic resistivity 200 mohm cm
- Breakdown of the rigid band picture. Anomalous transfer of spectral weight in photoemission and optics.
- The quantitative tools of the standard model fail, e.g. alpha gamma transition in Cerium, Mott transition in oxides, actinides etc…

Correlated Materials do big things

- Huge resistivity changes V2O3.
- Copper Oxides. (La2-x Bax) CuO4 High Temperature Superconductivity.150 K in the Ca2Ba2Cu3HgO8 .
- Uranium and Cerium Based Compounds. Heavy Fermion Systems,CeCu6,m*/m=1000
- (La1-xSrx)MnO3 Colossal Magneto-resistance.

Strongly Correlated Materials.

- Large thermoelectric response in NaCo2-xCuxO4
- Huge volume collapses, Ce, Pu……
- Large and ultrafast optical nonlinearities Sr2CuO3
- Large Coexistence of Ferroelectricity and Ferromagnetism (multiferroics) YMnO3.

Localization vs Delocalization Strong Correlation Problem

- Many interesting compounds do not fit within the “Standard Model”.
- Tend to have elements with partially filled d and f shells. Competition between kinetic and Coulomb interactions.
- Breakdown of the wave picture. Need to incorporate a real space perspective (Mott).
- Non perturbative problem.
- Require a framework that combines both atomic physics and band theory. DMFT.

DMFT ideas can be used in both cases.

Dynamical Mean Field Theory

- Basic idea: reduce the quantum many body problem to a one site or a cluster of sites, in a medium of non interacting electrons obeying a self consistency condition.[A. Georges and GK Phys. Rev. B 45, 6497, 1992].
- Merge atomic physics and band theory. Atom in a medium. Weiss field. = Quantum impurity model.

Conclusions and Outlook

- Motivation: Mott transition in Americium and Plutonium. In both cases theory (DMFT) and experiment suggest a more gradual transformation than postulated in earlier theories.
- DMFT: Physical connection between spectra and structure. Studied the Mott transition from both ends, Studied open and closed shell cases. .
- DMFT: method under construction, but it already gives quantitative results and qualitative insights. It can be systematically improved in many directions. Interactions between theory and experiments.
- Pu: simple picture of alpha delta and epsilon. Interplay of lattice and electronic structure near the Mott transition.
- Am: Rich physics, mixed valence under pressure ? Superconductivity near the Mott transition.

Actinides and The Mott Phenomena

Evolution of the electronic structure between the atomic limit and the band limit in an open shell situation.

The “”in between regime” is ubiquitous central theme in strongly correlated systems.

Actinides allow us to probe this physics in ELEMENTS. Mott transition across the actinide series [ B. Johansson Phil Mag. 30,469 (1974)] . Revisit the problem using a new insights and new techniques from the solution of the Mott transition problem within DMFT in a model Hamiltonian.

Use the ideas and concepts that resulted from this development to give physical qualitative insights into real materials.

Turn the technology developed to solve simple models into a practical quantitative electronic structure method .

More important, one would like to be able to evaluate from the theory itself when the approximation is reliable!! And captures new fascinating aspects of the immediate vecinity of the Mott transition in two dimensional systems…..

Approaching the Mott transition: CDMFT Picture

- Qualitative effect, momentum space differentiation. Formation of hot –cold regions is an unavoidable consequence of the approach to the Mott insulating state!
- D wave gapping of the single particle spectra as the Mott transition is approached.

Conclusions

- Qualitative effect, momentum space differentiation. Formation of hot –cold regions is an unavoidable consequence of the approach to the Mott insulating state!
- General phenomena, but the location of the cold regions depends on parameters. Study the “normal state” of the Hubbard model is useful.
- On the hole doped normal and superconducting state can be connected to each other as in the RVB scenario. High Tc superconductivity may result follow from doping a Mott insulator phase but it is not necessarily follow from it. One may not be able to connect the Mott insulator to the superconductor if the nodes are in the “wrong place”.

To test if the formation of the hot and cold regions is the result of the proximity to Antiferromagnetism, we studied various values of t’/t, U=16.

Approaching the Mott transition:

- Qualitative effect, momentum space differentiation. Formation of hot –cold regions is an unavoidable consequence of the approach to the Mott insulating state!
- General phenomena, but the location of the cold regions depends on parameters.
- With the present resolution, t’ =.9 and .3 are similar. However it is perfectly possible that at lower energies further refinements and differentiation will result from the proximity to different ordered states.

Fermi Surface Shape Renormalization

- Photoemission measured the low energy renormalized Fermi surface.
- If the high energy (bare ) parameters are doping independent, then the low energy hopping parameters are doping dependent. Another failure of the rigid band picture.
- Electron doped case, the Fermi surface renormalizes TOWARDS nesting, the hole doped case the Fermi surface renormalizes AWAY from nesting. Enhanced magnetism in the electron doped side.

Qualitative Difference between the hole doped and the electron doped phase diagram is due to the underlying normal state.” In the hole doped, it has nodal quasiparticles near (p/2,p/2) which are ready “to become the superconducting quasiparticles”. Therefore the superconducing state can evolve continuously to the normal state. The superconductivity can appear at very small doping.

- Electron doped case, has in the underlying normal state quasiparticles leave in the (p, 0) region, there is no direct road to the superconducting state (or at least the road is tortuous) since the latter has QP at (p/2, p/2).

How is the Mott insulatorapproached from the superconducting state ?

- DMFT is a useful mean field tool to study correlated electrons. Provide a zeroth order picture of a physical phenomena.
- Provide a link between a simple system (“mean field reference frame”) and the physical system of interest. [Sites, Links, and Plaquettes]
- Formulate the problem in terms of local quantities (which we can usually compute better).
- Allows to perform quantitative studies and predictions . Focus on the discrepancies between experiments and mean field predictions.
- Generate useful language and concepts. Follow mean field states as a function of parameters.
- Controlled approach!

- Numerous other competing states. Dimer phase, box phase , staggered flux phase . Different decouplings, different answers.
- Neel order
- Stability of the pseudogap state at finite temperature. [Ubbens and Lee]
- Missing incoherent spectra . [ fluctuations of slave bosons ]
- Temperature dependence of the penetration depth [Wen and Lee , Ioffe and Millis ]
- Theory:r[T]=x-Ta x2 , Exp: r[T]= x-T a.

Anomalous Resistivity

The delta –epsilon transition

- The high temperature phase, (epsilon) is body centered cubic, and has a smaller volume than the (fcc) delta phase.
- What drives this phase transition?
- LDA+DMFT functional computes total energies opens the way to the computation of phonon frequencies in correlated materials (S. Savrasov and G. Kotliar 2002). Combine linear response and DMFT.

Phonon entropy drives the epsilon delta phase transition

- Epsilon is slightly more delocalized than delta, has SMALLER volume and lies at HIGHER energy than delta at T=0. But it has a much larger phonon entropy than delta.
- At the phase transition the volume shrinks but the phonon entropy increases.
- Estimates of the phase transition following Drumont and G. Ackland et. al. PRB.65, 184104 (2002); (and neglecting electronic entropy). TC ~ 600 K.
