Times Cited Count：0 Percentile：0(Physics, Multidisciplinary)We report a mean-field theoretical study of a triangular magnet NiGaS. Using the localized Wannier functions obtained from a band calculation, the most stable magnetic state was found to be spiral with the incommensurate structure, consistent with the result from neutron diffraction. The Ni-site Coulomb interaction was not strong (U about 2 eV). The spin value at the Ni site was also not so large about 1.1 mb. These results mean that the hybridization between Ni and S may play an important role. The dynamical spin correlation function was found to in accord with the results from neutron scattering.

Times Cited Count：3 Percentile：32.69(Physics, Multidisciplinary)We study theoretically resonant inelastic X-ray scattering (RIXS) at the Cu -edge in a typical parent compound of high- cuprate superconductors LaCuO on the basis of a detailed electronic band structure. We construct a realistic and precise tight-binding model by employing the maximally-localized Wannier functions derived from a first-principles electronic structure calculation, and then take account of the Coulomb repulsion between electrons at each Cu site. The antiferromagnetic ground state is described within the Hartree-Fock approximation, and take account of electron correlations in the intermediate states of RIXS within the random-phase approximation (RPA). Calculated RIXS spectra agree well with the experimentally observed features including low-energy magnon excitation, - excitations, and charge-transfer excitations, over a wide excitation-energy range. In particular, we stress the importance of photon polarization dependence: the intensity of magnon excitation and the spectral structure of - excitations depend significantly not only on the polarization direction of incident incoming photons but also that of outgoing photons.

Times Cited Count：5 Percentile：44.38(Physics, Multidisciplinary)We analyze resonant inelastic X-ray scattering (RIXS) at the Cu edge in a typical orbital-ordered compound KCuF on the basis of a microscopic theory. Spectral shape and its dependence on polarization direction and momentum transfer of photons are explained consistently with experimental data within our microscopic calculation. According to our microscopic orbital-resolving analysis, high-energy spectral weights (above 5 eV) originate from charge-transfer excitations related to the Cu- orbitals, while the low-energy weights (below 2 eV) originate from the - orbital excitations among the five Cu- orbitals. We assign specifically the RIXS weights to microscopic orbital-excitation processes, beyond the previous phenomenological assignment based on symmetry properties.

Times Cited Count：8 Percentile：38.69(Materials Science, Multidisciplinary)We report the first observation by momentum-resolved resonant inelastic X-ray scattering of charge excitations in an iron-based superconductor and its parent compound, PrFeAsO and PrFeAsO respectively, with two main results. First, using calculations based on a 16 band model, we show that the energy of the lowest-lying excitations, identified as interband transitions of dominant , orbital character, exhibits a dramatic dependence on electron correlation. This enables us to estimate the Coulomb repulsion and Hund's coupling , and to highlight the role played by in these peculiar orbital-dependent electron correlation effects. Second, we show that short-range antiferromagnetic correlations, which are a prerequisite to the occurrence of these excitations at the point, are still present in the superconducting state.

Times Cited Count：2 Percentile：21.1(Physics, Multidisciplinary)We analyze theoretically the resonant inelastic X-ray scattering (RIXS) at the Ni edge in the stripe-ordered state of LaSrNiO at = 1/3. In the calculation of RIXS spectra, the stripe-ordered ground state is described within the Hartree-Fock approximation by using a realistic tight-binding model for Ni 3 and O 2 orbitals, and the electron correlations in the electronic excitation processes are taken into account within the random-phase approximation. The calculated RIXS spectrum shows a tail toward the low-energy region when the momentum transfer of photons equals the stripe vector , being consistent with a recent experimental result. The origin of this anomalous momentum dependence of RIXS spectra is discussed microscopically.

Times Cited Count：0 Percentile：0(Physics, Applied)The high- superconductivity in iron pnictides is studied within a perturbation theory. We employ a five-band Hubbard model taking account of five Fe3-like local orbitals. The Eliashberg equation is solved by calculating the pairing interaction within the third-order perturbation expansion in the Coulomb interaction at iron sites. The superconducting order parameter changes sign between the disconnected Fermi surfaces, and the superconducting gap is fully opened without any nodes on the Fermi surface. The most favorable pairing symmetry is an -wave. It is suggested that the superconductivity disappears in high doping regions where the electron pockets or the hole pockets disappear.

Times Cited Count：27 Percentile：78.3(Physics, Multidisciplinary)High- superconductivity discovered recently in iron pnictides is analyzed within a perturbation theory. Specifically, the probable pairing symmetry, the doping dependence of and a pairing mechanism etc. are studied by solving the Eliashberg equation for multi-band (2- and 5-band) Hubbard models. The effective pairing interaction is expanded perturbatively in the on-site Coulomb integrals up to third order. Our weak-coupling approach suggests: sufficiently large eigenvalues of the Eliashberg equation are obtained to explain the actual high for realistic on-site Coulomb integrals in the 5-band model. Thus unconventional (non-phonon-mediated) superconductivity is much likely to be realized. The superconducting order parameter does not change its sign on the Fermi surfaces, but change between the electron and hole Fermi surfaces. Consequently the probable pairing symmetry is always "nodeless extended -wave (more specifically, -wave)". It is suggested that the 2-band model is insufficient to explain actual high 's.

The effect of the fluctuating triplet-pairing condensate on the spin susceptibility is taken into account. The triplet pairing symmetry is assumed to be the most promising form: () ( + . For small (maybe realistic) anisotropy of pairing interaction in spin space, we expect a possible low-energy spin-wave mode as a peak structure in the imaginary part of the dynamical spin susceptibility, isolated from the spin excitation continuum. The present work is a natural extension of previous single-band calculations to a more realistic three-band calculation.

Recently, electronic excitation spectra have been observed in strongly correlated electron systems such as transition-metal compounds, by utilizing the highly brilliant synchrotron radiation. Among them, momentum dependent excitation spectra are observed in resonant inelastic X-ray scattering (RIXS) experiments at the transition-metal absorption -edge in the hard X-ray regime. The microscopic theory of RIXS constructed recently by the present authors is explained. An essential point is that RIXS spectrum is closely related to the dynamical density correlation function of correlated transition-metal electrons. Spectral shapes and momentum dependence observed in several transition-metaloxides are semiquantitatively explained.

In this article we review essential natures of superconductivity in strongly correlated electron systems from a universal point of view. Here we consider materials such as high- cuprates, BEDT-TTF organic superconductors, ruthenate SrRuO, and heavy fermion superconductors. After the review of experimental results, we explain the formalism to discuss superconducting properties of strongly correlated electron systems based on the Dyson-Gor'kov equations. Then, we introduce theoretical retults on cuprates, organics, ruthenate, and heavy fermion superconductors in this order.
