Energy-scale cascade and correspondence between Mott and Kondo lattice physics

27 Feb 2020  ·  Danqing Hu, Ning-Hua Tong, Yi-feng Yang ·

We propose an energy-scale correspondence between the Mott physics and the Kondo lattice physics and construct a tentative phase diagram of their correlated electrons with two characteristic energy scales $\omega^*$ and $\Omega$ marking the upper boundary of a low-energy regime with well-developed long-range coherence and the lower boundary of localized spectral weight in the energy space, respectively. In between, there exists a crossover region with emergent but damped quasiparticle excitations... We argue that the presence of two separate energy scales is a generic property of correlated electrons on a lattice and reflects an intrinsic two-stage process of the quasiparticle dynamics to build up the lattice coherence. For the Hubbard model, they correspond to the kink and waterfall structures on the dispersion, while for the periodic Anderson model, they are associated with the indirect and direct hybridization gaps. Our work reveals a deep connection between the Mott and Kondo lattice physics and provides a basic ingredient for the study of many-body systems. read more
