The “normal” state of layered dichalcogenides Arghya Taraphder Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur Department of Physics and Centre for Theoretical Studies Workshop @ Harish Chandra Research Institute, November 12-14, 2010
Salient Features Transition metal dichalcogenide – TM atoms separated by two layers of chalcogen atoms TM atoms form 2D triangular lattice CDW & Superconductivity (likely to be anisotropic) Partially filled TM d band or chalcogen p band:d 1/0 1T and 2H type lattice structure Both I and C CDW at moderate temperature Normal to SC transition with pressure/doping Normal transport unusual (cf. HTSC)
Typical Phase diagram D.B. Mcwhan, et al. PRL 45,269(1980)(2H- TaSe2) A. F. Kusmartseva, et al. PRL 103, 236401(2009) (1T- TiSe2) B. Sipos, et al. Nat. mater. 7, 960 (2008) (IT-TaS2) 2H-TaSe2 1T-TiSe2 1T-TaS2
Optical conductivity (0.04 < E < 5 eV range) R C Dynes, et al., EPJB 33, 15 (2003)
Features of dc transport and Re σ (ω) “Drude-like” peak at ω=0 for both systems along both ab and C-directions, narrowing at low T, indicating freezing of scattering of charge carriers at low energy Tccdw does not affect transport at all, in fact thermodynamics is also unaffected Broad conductivity upto large energies (~0.5 eV)
Spectral weight distribution Spectral weight is non-zero even upto 5 eV and beyond – “recovery” of total n uncertain Shifts progressively towards FIR as T is lowered - condensation at lower frequency Nothing abrupt happens as T_CDW is crossed
Scattering rate from transport Strongly frequency dependent. Rapid suppression of both Γab and Γc below characteristic freq. ~ 500 /cm Possible “pseudogap” in 20K curve High and low T Γab cross each other for TaSe2 at some frequency No saturation of Γab upto 0.6 eV Both Γab and Γc are above Γ= ω line upto 2000 /cm and nearly linear in ω
“QP” Scattering Rate & SE from ARPES Valla, PRL 85, 4759 (2000)
Self-energy from ARPES Local - no k-dependence Re Σ peaks at 65 meV, Im Σ drops there – characteristic of a photo-hole scattering off a collective ‘mode’ ~ 65 mev (too large for all phonons in TaSe2) Im Σ(0) matches excellently with transport Γ(0) in its T-dependence

Fermi surface map for the TB bands 2H-TaSe 2 1T-TaS 2
Conclusion DMFT Spectral function is broadened. With application of Inter-orbital coulomb interaction the system goes to insulator. With application of Inter-orbital hopping DMFT orbital occupation changes from LDA. There is a opening of gap with increasing temperature up-to 140K. With decreasing pressure hole pockets in the Fermi surface disappear. With increasing pressure the gap formed at the Fermi surface decreases.
