Spin Density Waves in Dimerized Systems

We study the effect of strong electronic correlations in the presence of chemically-induced charge transfer. We consider the Hubbard model at half-filling with an external staggered field as the simplest model to investigate the condition for the existence of a spin density wave competing with a charge density wave. The slave-boson approach is used to treat the electronic correlations in the strong coupling regime. We also consider the effect of a Brillouin-zone boundary phonon via a dimerization of the hopping term, thus introducing a competition with a paramagnetic bond-alternating phase and determine the phase diagram.

    A similar model, where however the direct effect of U on the charge-density-wave amplitude was prevented by subtracting the Hartree contribution in the U term, was studied in V. Tugushev, S. Caprara, and M. Avignon, Phys. Rev. B 54 5466 (1996).Google Scholar
