Raman scattering from antiferromagnetic spin fluctuations

Original Contributions


A microscopic theory for the scattering of light from spin fluctuation pair modes in the two-dimensional Hubbard model is presented. Two-spin fluctuation processes with opposite momenta near the antiferromagnetic wave vectorQ=(π, π) are shown to contribute in particular to the low energy part of the Raman cross section. We explicitly investigate the influence of the Raman vertex function that describes the coupling of the Raman vertex function that describes the coupling of the light to the electrons and distinguishes between the different scattering geometries. In addition we explore the dependence on the correlation strength and on the temperature.
