- ItemNematic fluctuations in iron-oxychalcogenide Mott insulators(London : Nature Publishing Group, 2021) Freelon, B.; Sarkar, R.; Kamusella, S.; Brückner, F.; Grinenko, V.; Acharya, Swagata; Laad, Mukul; Craco, Luis; Yamani, Zahra; Flacau, Roxana; Swainson, Ian; Frandsen, Benjamin; Birgeneau, Robert; Liu, Yuhao; Karki, Bhupendra; Alfailakawi, Alaa; Neuefeind, Joerg C.; Everett, Michelle; Wang, Hangdong; Xu, Binjie; Fang, Minghu; Klauss, H.-H.Nematic fluctuations occur in a wide range physical systems from biological molecules to cuprates and iron pnictide high-Tc superconductors. It is unclear whether nematicity in pnictides arises from electronic spin or orbital degrees of freedom. We studied the iron-based Mott insulators La2O2Fe2OM2M = (S, Se), which are structurally similar to pnictides. Nuclear magnetic resonance revealed a critical slowing down of nematic fluctuations and complementary Mössbauerr spectroscopy data showed a change of electrical field gradient. The neutron pair distribution function technique detected local C2 fluctuations while neutron diffraction indicates that global C4 symmetry is preserved. A geometrically frustrated Heisenberg model with biquadratic and single-ion anisotropic terms provides the interpretation of the low temperature magnetic fluctuations. The nematicity is not due to spontaneous orbital order, instead it is linked to geometrically frustrated magnetism based on orbital selectivity. This study highlights the interplay between orbital order and spin fluctuations in nematicity.
- ItemRedox chemistry in the pigment eumelanin as a function of temperature using broadband dielectric spectroscopy(Cambridge : Royal Society of Chemistry, 2019) Motovilov, K.A.; Grinenko, V.; Savinov, M.; Gagkaeva, Z.V.; Kadyrov, L.S.; Pronin, A.A.; Bedran, Z.V.; Zhukova, E.S.; Mostert, A.B.; Gorshunov, B.P.Conductive biomolecular systems are investigated for their promise of new technologies. One biomolecular material that has garnered interest for device applications is eumelanin. Its unusual properties have led to its incorporation in a wide set of platforms including transistor devices and batteries. Much of eumelanin's conductive properties are due to a solid state redox comproportionation reaction. However, most of the work that has been done to demonstrate the role of the redox chemistry in eumelanin has been via control of eumelanin's hydration content with scant attention given to temperature dependent behavior. Here we demonstrate for the first time consistency between hydration and temperature effects for the comproportionation conductivity model utilizing dielectric spectroscopy, heat capacity measurements, frequency scaling phenomena and recognizing that activation energies in the range of ∼0.5 eV correspond to proton dissociation events. Our results demonstrate that biomolecular conductivity models should account for temperature and hydration effects coherently.
- ItemSelective mass enhancement close to the quantum critical point in BaFe2(As1−x P x )2(London : Nature Publishing Group, 2017) Grinenko, V.; Iida, K.; Kurth, F.; Efremov, D.V.; Drechsler, S.-L.; Cherniavskii, I.; Morozov, I.; Hänisch, J.; Förster, T.; Tarantini, C.; Jaroszynski, J.; Maiorov, B.; Jaime, M.; Yamamoto, A.; Nakamura, I.; Fujimoto, R.; Hatano, T.; Ikuta, H.; Hühne, R.A quantum critical point (QCP) is currently being conjectured for the BaFe2(As1−x P x )2 system at the critical value x c ≈ 0.3. In the proximity of a QCP, all thermodynamic and transport properties are expected to scale with a single characteristic energy, given by the quantum fluctuations. Such a universal behavior has not, however, been found in the superconducting upper critical field Hc2. Here we report Hc2 data for epitaxial thin films extracted from the electrical resistance measured in very high magnetic fields up to 67 Tesla. Using a multi-band analysis we find that Hc2 is sensitive to the QCP, implying a significant charge carrier effective mass enhancement at the doping-induced QCP that is essentially band-dependent. Our results point to two qualitatively different groups of electrons in BaFe2(As1−x P x )2. The first one (possibly associated to hot spots or whole Fermi sheets) has a strong mass enhancement at the QCP, and the second one is insensitive to the QCP. The observed duality could also be present in many other quantum critical systems.
- ItemUniversal scaling behavior of the upper critical field in strained FeSe0.7Te0.3 thin films(Bristol : Institute of Physics Publishing, 2018) Yuan, F.; Grinenko, V.; Iida, K.; Richter, S.; Pukenas, A.; Skrotzki, W.; Sakoda, M.; Naito, M.; Sala, A.; Putti, M.; Yamashita, A.; Takano, Y.; Shi, Z.; Nielsch, K.; Hühne, R.Revealing the universal behaviors of iron-based superconductors (FBS) is important to elucidate the microscopic theory of superconductivity. In this work, we investigate the effect of in-plane strain on the slope of the upper critical field H c2 at the superconducting transition temperature T c (i.e. -dH c2/dT) for FeSe0.7Te0.3 thin films. The in-plane strain tunes T c in a broad range, while the composition and disorder are almost unchanged. We show that -dH c2/dT scales linearly with T c, indicating that FeSe0.7Te0.3 follows the same universal behavior as observed for pnictide FBS. The observed behavior is consistent with a multiband superconductivity paired by interband interaction such as sign change s ± superconductivity.
