Electronic compressibility and high-Tc superconductivity : new links

In multi-orbital Hubbard models including strong intra-atomic exchange a so-called "Hund’s metal” phase is realized that, among other hallmarks, typically shows a strong differentiation in the degree of correlation of the conduction electrons based on their orbital character.
This selective physics is also a key player in Iron-based superconductors (FeSC), where a wealth of experimental evidences validates this theoretical picture.

We here show that at the frontier between this Hund’s metal phase and a conventional metal, the electronic compressibility is strongly enhanced or even divergent, and that among the FeSC, those that have a high Tc are placed in our simulations on this frontier.

This same theoretical evidence of enhanced compressibility at the frontier between a phase with selective correlations and a more conventional metal is found in cuprates, and we will outline the main indications for a common scenario of high-Tc superconductivity.
