Signatures of a staggered-flux phase in the tJ model with two holes on a 32-site lattice

We study the relevance of the staggered-flux phase in the t-J model using a system with two holes on a 32-site lattice with periodic boundary conditions. We find a staggered-flux pattern in the current-current correlation in the lowest energy d-wave state where there is mutual attraction between the holes. This staggered correlation decays faster with… CONTINUE READING
