We present a scenario for the peculiar coexistence of charge fluctuations observed in quasi-2D 1/4-filled organic conductors theta-(BEDT-TTF)2X in the quantum critical regime where the charge ordering is suppressed down to zero temperature. The scenario is explored in the extended Hubbard model including electron-phonon couplings on an anisotropic(More)
Effects of disorder on the two competing phases, i.e., the ferromagnetic metal and the commensurate charge/lattice ordered insulator, are studied by Monte Carlo simulation. The disorder suppresses the charge/lattice ordering more strongly than the ferromagnetic order, driving the commensurate insulator to the ferromagnetic metal near the phase boundary in(More)
Critical phenomena of ferromagnetic transition in colossal magnetoresistance manganites are theoretically studied. Concerning the critical exponents for this transition, there still remains controversy among experimental results. In order to clarify intrinsic physics of the manganites through a comparison with theoretical prediction, we investigate the(More)
All elements, except for helium, appear to solidify into crystalline forms at zero temperature, and it is generally assumed that the introduction of lattice defects results in an increase in internal energy. beta-Rhombohedral boron, a thermodynamically stable form of elemental boron at high temperature, is known to have a large amount of partial occupied(More)
The perovskite LaCoO3 evolves from a nonmagnetic Mott insulator to a spin cluster ferromagnet (FM) with the substitution of Sr2+ for La3+ in La1-xSrxCoO3. The clusters increase in size and number with x and the charge percolation through the clusters leads to a metallic state. Using elastic neutron scattering on La1-xSrxCoO3 single crystals, we show that an(More)
We present a mechanism of resistivity minimum in conduction electron systems coupled with localized moments, which is distinguished from the Kondo effect. Instead of the spin-flip process in the Kondo effect, electrons are elastically scattered by local spin correlations which evolve in a particular way under geometrical frustration as decreasing(More)
We theoretically study the effect of spiral-type charge frustration in a quasi-one-dimensional molecular conductor (DI-DCNQI)2Ag. We clarify how the spiral frustration in the interchain Coulomb repulsion is relieved and leads to a self-organization of complex charge-lattice ordered chains, in agreement with the recent synchrotron x-ray study [T. Kakiuchi,(More)
We reveal the significance of kinetic-driven multiple-spin interactions hidden in geometrically frustrated Kondo lattice models. Carefully examining the perturbation in terms of the spin-charge coupling up to the fourth order, we find that a positive biquadratic interaction is critically enhanced and plays a crucial role on stabilizing a spin scalar chiral(More)
We investigated the charge-ordered (CO) state in spinel AlV2O4 by electron diffraction, synchrotron x-ray diffraction, and magnetic measurements. It was found that the CO structure appearing below 700 K is characterized by the formation of V clusters (heptamers), each of which is consisting of 7 vanadium atoms and is in a spin-singlet state as a total.(More)
We reveal the full energy-momentum structure of the pseudogap of underdoped high-Tc cuprate superconductors. Our combined theoretical and experimental analysis explains the spectral-weight suppression observed in the B2g Raman response at finite energies in terms of a pseudogap appearing in the single-electron excitation spectra above the Fermi level in the(More)
