TRANSPORT ANOMALIES AND MARGINAL FERMI-LIQUID EFFECTS AT A QUANTUM CRITICAL POINT

By D. Belitz, Sharon, L. Sessions, T. R. Kirkpatrick, R. Narayanan and Thomas Vojta

Abstract

The behavior of the conductivity and the density of states, as well as the phase relaxation time, of disordered itinerant electrons across a quantum ferromagnetic transition is discussed. It is shown that critical fluctuations lead to anomalies in the temperature and energy dependence of the conductivity and the tunneling density of states, respectively, that are stronger than the usual weak-localization anomalies in a disordered Fermi liquid. This can be used as an experimental probe of the quantum critical behavior. The energy dependence of the phase relaxation time at criticality is shown to be that of a marginal Fermi liquid.
