Andrii Sotnikov (Akhiezer Institute for Theoretical Physics, NSC KIPT, Charkov, Ukrajina): Ferromagnetism of LaCoO3 and orbital ordering of cold atoms in optical lattices
Ferromagnetism of LaCoO3 and orbital ordering of cold atoms in optical lattices
Akhiezer Institute for Theoretical Physics, NSC KIPT, Charkov, Ukrajina
The first part of the talk is devoted to unconventional ferromagnetic (FM) ordering in the insulating LaCoO3 under tensile strain . We argue that the FM exchange in this compound originates from the highly-fluctuative nature of high-spin (HS) states, which can be viewed as bi-excitons of itinerant intermediate-spin states [2,3]. To confirm that, we construct a series of theoretical approximations to account for crucial electron correlation effects responsible for HS fluctuations and magnetic exchange. The obtained amplitudes and spatial characteristics of magnetic couplings between the "dressed" HS states show a good agreement with experimental observations and provide important details to the physical picture of LaCoO3.
In the second part, we focus on cold atoms in state-dependent optical lattices . These have provided an extended toolbox for simulations of not only antiferromagnetism , but a number of long-range-ordered phases peculiar to multiorbital solid-state materials. By means of dynamical mean-field theory we show that the four-component mixture of cold Yb-173 atoms with realistic lattice depths, interaction parameters, and measurements possibilities is a good candidate, in particular, for studies of orbital ordering relevant to LaMnO3 and KCuF3.
