Title
Many-body large polaron optical conductivity in
Author
Abstract
Recent experimental data on the optical conductivity of niobium-doped SrTiO3 are interpreted in terms of a gas of large polarons with effective coupling constant αeff≈2. The theoretical approach takes into account many-body effects, the electron-phonon interaction with multiple LO-phonon branches, and the degeneracy and the anisotropy of the Ti t2g conduction band. Based on the Fröhlich interaction, the many-body large polaron theory provides an interpretation for the essential characteristics, exceptinterestinglyfor the unexpectedly large intensity of a peak at ∼130 meV, of the observed optical conductivity spectra of SrTi1−xNbxO3 without any adjustment of material parameters.
