Quantum magnetic properties and metal?to?insulator transition in chemically doped calcium ruthenate perovskite
Sprache des Titels:
Ruthenates provide comprehensive platform to study a plethora of novel properties, such as quantum magnetism, superconductivity and magnetic fluctuation mediated metal-insulator transition. In this article, we provide an overview of quantum mechanical phenomenology in calcium ruthenium oxide with varying compositions. While the stoichiometric composition of CaRuO3 exhibits non-Fermi liquid behavior with quasi-criticality, chemically doped compounds depict prominent signatures of quantum magnetic fluctuations at low temperature that in some cases are argued to mediate in metal-insulator transition. In the case of cobalt doped- CaRuO3, an unusual continuum fluctuation is found to persist deep inside the glassy phase of the material. These observations reflect the richness of ruthenate research platform in the study of quantum magnetic phenomena of fundamental importance.
