  • A Green's function approach for resonant Raman scattering is proposed here, which is suitable for both weak and strong vibronic couplings. The formalism is based on the solution of the exact Green's function in the Longuet--Higgins representation, using the solutions to the static equations in ordinary molecular quantum mechanics as the basis set. The physical meaning of various interaction schemes becomes clear in this representation. In particular, the vibronic coupling is based on the interactions between individual zero-order vibronic levels and is carried through to infinite order, whereas the traditional first-order results only account for the emission of one singlemore » vibrational quantum. Nonadiabatic contributions are also contained in the formulation. The method is applied to the following cases: (1) the change in nuclear equilibrium position due to electronic excitation, (2) vibronic coupling involving two excited states, and (3) the change in nuclear potential (force constants) due to electronic excitation. Numerical results show that the convergence is excellent even for large vibronic coupling and in exact resonance region. Furthermore, all the physical quantities of interest, such as Raman cross sections of fundamentals and overtones, absorption profiles, Franck--Condon factors, quantum yields can be obtained at the same time in this unified approach.« less
  • Here, the excitonic insulator phase has long been predicted to form in proximity to a band gap opening in the underlying band structure. The character of the pairing is conjectured to crossover from weak (BCS-like) to strong coupling (BEC-like) as the underlying band structure is tuned from the metallic to the insulating side of the gap opening. Here we report the high-magnetic field phase diagram of graphite to exhibit just such a crossover. By way of comprehensive angle-resolved magnetoresistance measurements, we demonstrate that the underlying band gap opening occurs inside the magnetic field-induced phase, paving the way for a systematicmore » study of the BCS-BEC-like crossover by means of conventional condensed matter probes.« less
  • The behavior of fermions interacting via vector gluons in the strong-coupling limit is investigated. A suitable coupling betweeen the Dirac and the vector-gluon field gives rise to bound-state solutions. The coherent field approximation is employed to find the bound-state masses, which are further discussed by analytical and numerical methods and are found to be positive-definite in the example considered numerically.

  • The introduction of resonance line width into the QED cyclotron scattering amplitudes is considered. It is shown that the width arises from loop corrections to the electron propagator, which also brings about shifts in the Landau energy levels. A formalism is developed that allows the dressed electron propagator to be derived. It is shown that the Breit-Wigner broadening prescription E[yields]E - i[Gamma]/2 is approximately correct, if the set of solutions of the Dirac equation which diagonalize the mass operator are used as intermediate states.
