Two Holes in the tJ Model Form a Bound State for Any Nonzero J/t

Abstract

Determination of the parameter regime in which two holes in the tJ model form a bound state represents a long standing open problem in the field of strongly correlated systems. By applying and systematically improving the exact diagonalization method defined over a limited functional space (EDLFS), we show that the average distance between two holes scales as 〈d〉∼2(J/t)−1/4 for J/t<0.15, therefore, providing strong evidence that two holes in the tJ model form the bound state for any nonzero J/t. However, the symmetry of such bound pair in the ground state is p-wave. This state is consistent with phase separation at finite hole filling, as observed recently in Phys. Rev. B 85, 245113 (2012).
