2 Stripe Structure Usually occur with anisotropic interaction Long range attractive interactionStripe structure usually occurs with anisotropic interaction such as dipole-dipole interaction.When the anisotropic interaction consists of a long range attractive interaction and a short range repulsive interaction, the Stripe structure occurs like this image.Connect along attractive interaction direction and separate along repulsive interaction direction.Dipole-Dipole interaction is example of this type of anisotropic interaction.Short range repulsive interactionEx)Dipole-Dipole interaction
3 Iron-based Superconductors New Type Strong correlated systemIron-based SuperconductorsLaFePO(1111)Fe-PLa-OIron-based superconductors is new type of strong correlated systems.The main characteristic of the iron-based superconductor is coexistence of magnetism and superconductivity.In iron-based superconductors, SDW state and SC state coexist.The crystal structure is two dimensional. So Fermi surface is two dimensional.Two dimensional Fermi surface cause SDW by Fermi surface nesting .W. F. Wang et. al. New J. Phys (2009)Coexistence of magnetism and superconductivity
4 Magnet New Phase? Magnets and Iron-based Superconductors Iron-based ex)Fe, Ni, CoSpin and Chargeex)LaFePO,BaFe2As2Spin Density Wave(SDW)Main CharacterSpinrspinMain CharacterChargeI sort the magnets and iron-based superconductors by view point of spin-spin interaction.By this view point, I can consider the new phase between magnets and iron-based superconductors.The ground state of the magnets is ferromagnetic or antiferromagnetic.The main characteristic of magnet consist of a spin element of a electron.The spin-spin interaction in the magnet is strong.By contrast, if the strong spin-spin interaction on the magnet disapper, that material can show superconductivity.In this point, Iron-based superconductor is weak spin-spin interaction magnet.Then the attractive interaction of cooper pairs are formed by a charge element of electron.From the point of view of spin-spin interaction, we think that there is new phase.The main characteristic of new phase is both of a spin element and a charge element.We look on this new phase.It is said that SDW occur at the non-superconducting phase.The spin structure is formed by SDW.The ground state related with charge is not known.StrongWeakSpin-Spin InteractionInvestigate the new electronic stateOur Purpose
5 FeTe SDW transition was suggested Method bFeTeCleavedabcTo study the new phase, FeTe is good material.Because FeTe has no blocking layer, so FeTe is simplest crystal structure among iron-based superconductors.FeTe cleave easily at here. This is important point at surface sensibility measurement like STM.FeTe show high pressure effect. It is good for control electron property without doping.FeTe have many advantages on experiment.We use FeTe to investigate the electron state of the new phase.SDW transition was suggestedA.

So STM have atomic resolution.Tunneling current between tip and sample is proportional to integral of density of state of sample.Differential conductance is proportional to density of state of sample.Then STM has atomic resolution and high energy resolution.We use low temperature ultra high vacuum STM.The instrument spec is this.Sample was cleaved in ultra high vacuum and measured at clean surface.D(r,eV):Density of State of sampleLT-UHV-STM/STSTemperature 6.8K Pressure 10-8PaSample was cleaved in ultra high vacuum6

13 STS Experimental Result (T=7.8K) TSDW~58KDSDW=9meVWe also measure tunnel differential conductance.Horizontal axis is bias voltage.Vertical axis is tunnel differential conductance.The differential conductance is proportional to DOS.There are kink structure at +-10meV indicated by blue arrows.The tunnel differential conductance around 0mV is almost zero. Then the kink structure is gap structure.The gap structure is same as expectation from 58K at mean field approximation.Then the gap structure is caused by SDW transition.We observed SDW gap on STS measurement.SDW gap structure
14 The model of SDW induced charge stripe structure When SDW was formed on iron layer.Ferromagnetic structureAntiferromagnetic structurenesting vectorAntiferromagnetic and ferromagnetic direction by SDW.Crystal Structure: 4-fold rotationSpin Structure: 2-fold rotationWe propose the model of SDW induced charge stripe structure.This picture shows the spin structure when the SDW occur on the iron layer.SDW nesting vector is .When the SDW occur on the iron layer, the spin structure form 2-fold rotational symmetry.2-fold rotational symmetry is lower symmetry than the crystal symmetry which is 4-fold rotation symmetry.The SDW cause symmetry breaking on spin structure.
15 Other Electrons have strong coulomb interaction +Reducing rotation symmetry caused by SDWThere are other Fermi surface which does not join on the SDW.Because of the two dimensional Fermi surface, nesting on the FeTe is incomplete.Other electrons have strong coulomb interaction.If the other electrons form a stripe structure with spin rotational symmetry, these electrons reduce the off-site coulomb interaction.In this model, the stripe structure can reduce the off-site coulomb interaction and it is caused by spin rotational symmetry breaking by SDW.Reduce off-site coulomb interactionSDW induced charge stripe structure

19 How do we form the stripe structure by isotropic interaction without structural anisotropy?Isotropic repulsive interaction particle form stripe structure on simulation.G. Malescio and G. Pellicane, Nature Materials, 2, 97 (2003)In previous slide, I talked a stripe structure is usually formed by an anisotropic interaction.How about an isotropic interaction such as coulomb interaction between charges?If there are structural anisotropy like organic conductors, charges can form the stripe structure.Then, if there are not structural anisotropy, it is not understood yet.Our motivation is Charges can form stripe structure without structural anisotropy.Theoretically, it is said that an isotropic repulsive interaction form a stripe structure by simulation.Lets consider about a charge stripe structure on experiments.Can Charges form stripe structure only themselves?
