We derive an S=1 spin polaron model which describes the motion of a single hole introduced into the S=1 spin antiferromagnetic ground state of Ca2RuO4. We solve the model using the self-consistent Born approximation and show that its hole spectral function qualitatively agrees with the experimentally observed high-binding energy part of the Ca2RuO4 photoemission spectrum. We explain the observed peculiarities of the photoemission spectrum by linking them to two anisotropies present in the…

Spin-orbit coupling and crystal-field splitting in Ti-doped Ca2RuO4 studied by ellipsometry

In Ca 2 RuO 4 , the competition of spin-orbit coupling ζ and tetragonal crystal field splitting ∆ CF has been discussed controversially for many years. The orbital occupation depends on ∆ CF /ζ ,

Suppression of effective spin-orbit coupling by thermal fluctuations in spin-orbit coupled antiferromagnets

We apply the finite-temperature variational cluster approach to a strongly correlated and spinorbit coupled model for four electrons (i.e. two holes) in the t2g subshell. We focus on parameters

Excitonic magnetism at the intersection of spin-orbit coupling and crystal-field splitting

Excitonic magnetism involving superpositions of singlet and triplet states is expected to arise for two holes in strongly correlated and spin-orbit coupled $t_{2g}$ orbitals. However, uncontested



Angle-resolved photoemission studies of lattice polaron formation in the cuprate Ca2CuO2Cl2

To elucidate the nature of the single-particle excitations in the undoped parent cuprates, we have performed a detailed study of Ca{sub 2}CuO{sub 2}Cl{sub 2} using photoemission spectroscopy. The

Hallmarks of Hunds coupling in the Mott insulator Ca2RuO4

The crystal field stabilization of the dxy orbital due to c-axis contraction is shown to be essential to explain the insulating phase and underscores the importance of multi-band physics, Coulomb interaction and Hund's coupling that together generate the Mott insulating state of Ca2RuO4.

String excitations of a hole in a quantum antiferromagnet and photoelectron spectroscopy

The aim of the present paper is twofold. The first goal is to show that high resolution angle-resolved photoelectron spectra from cuprates indicate the presence of string-like excitations of the

Spatial Structure of Spin Polarons in the t-J Model

The deformation of the quantum Neel state induced by a spin polaron is analyzed in a slave fermion approach. Our method is based on the self-consistent Born approximation for the Green's function and

Magnon dispersion in Ca2Ru1−xTixO4: Impact of spin-orbit coupling and oxygen moments

The magnon dispersion of Ca$_2$RuO$_4$ has been studied by polarized and unpolarized neutron scattering experiments on crystals containing 0, 1 and 10 % of Ti. The entire dispersion of transverse

Spin-Orbital Excitations in Ca2RuO4 Revealed by Resonant Inelastic X-Ray Scattering

The strongly correlated insulator Ca2RuO4 is considered as a paradigmatic realization of both spin-orbital physics and a band-Mott insulating phase, characterized by orbitally selective coexistence

Nature of the Mott transition in Ca2RuO4.

The results indicate that a similar scenario applies to Ca2-xSrxRuO4, where electrons are progressively transferred to the xz/yz bands with increasing x; however, the Mott transition down to ∼300  K is found, and the local-density approximation+dynamical mean-field theory is used.

Electron and orbital correlations in Ca2-xSrxRuO4 probed by optical spectroscopy.

The optical conductivity spectra of the quasi-two-dimensional Ca2-xSrxRuO4 system showed a shift toward higher frequency as temperature was lowered, indicating that electron-phonon interactions play an important role in the orbital arrangements.

Parton theory of magnetic polarons: Mesonic resonances and signatures in dynamics

When a mobile hole is moving in an anti-ferromagnet it distorts the surrounding Neel order and forms a magnetic polaron. Such interplay between hole motion and anti-ferromagnetism is believed to be

Spin-Orbit Coupling in the Mott Insulator Ca2RuO4

O 1s x-ray absorption study of the Mott insulator Ca{sub 2}RuO {sub 4} shows that the orbital population of the 4d t{sub 2g} band dramatically changes with temperature. In addition, spin-resolved
