We investigate numerically the ground state phase diagram of the one-dimensional extended Hubbard model, including an on-site interaction U and a nearest-neighbor interaction V. We focus on the ground state phases of the model in the VU region, where previous studies have suggested the possibility of dominant superconducting pairing fluctuations before the system phase separates at a critical value V=VPS. Using quantum Monte Carlo methods on lattices much larger than in previous Lanczös diagonalization studies, we determine the boundary of phase separation, the Luttinger-liquid correlation exponent Kρ, and other correlation functions in this region. We find that phase separation occurs for V significantly smaller than previously reported. In addition, for negative U, we find that a uniform state reenters from phase separation as the electron density is increased towards half filling. For V<VPS, our results show that superconducting fluctuations are not dominant. The system behaves asymptotically as a Luttinger liquid with Kρ<1, but we also find strong low-energy (but gapped) charge-density fluctuations at a momentum not expected for a standard Luttinger liquid.

Physics Next Workshops
March 20, 2017

The American Physical Society is initiating a new series of international workshops. These Physics Next workshops will be aimed at fostering new and emerging areas of physics research, focusing on topics that straddle traditional subject boundaries and are starting to “emerge from the noise.”

The upcoming workshop is titled “Physics Next: From Quantum Fields to Condensed Matter,” and will take place on August 24 - 26, 2017. More information.
