Far-infrared optical conductivity of CeCu2Si2.


PMID 23315274

Abstract

We investigated the optical reflectivity of the heavy-fermion metal CeCu(2)Si(2) in the energy range 3 meV-30 eV for temperatures between 4 and 300 K. The results for the charge dynamics indicate a behavior that is expected for the formation of a coherent heavy quasiparticle state: upon cooling the spectra of the optical conductivity indicate a narrowing of the coherent response. Below temperatures of 30 K a considerable suppression of conductivity evolves below a peak structure at 13 meV. We assign this gap-like feature to strong electron correlations due to the 4f-conduction electron hybridization.
