Title: Scaling of the Stress and Temperature Dependence of the Optical Anisotropy in Ba(Fe 1-x Co x ) 2As 2

Abstract

We revisit our recent investigations of the optical properties in the underdoped regime of the title compounds with respect to their anisotropic behavior as a function of both temperature and uniaxial stress across the ferro-elastic tetragonal-to-orthorhombic transition. By exploiting a dedicated pressure device, we can tune and control uniaxial stress in situ thus changing the degree of detwinning of the samples in the orthorhombic SDW state as well as pressure-inducing an orthorhombicity in the paramagnetic tetragonal phase. Here we discover a hysteretic behavior of the optical anisotropy; its stress versus temperature dependence across the structural transition bears testimony to the analogy with the magnetic-field versus temperature dependence of the magnetization in a ferromagnet when crossing the Curie temperature. In this context, we find furthermore an intriguing scaling of the stress and temperature dependence of the optical anisotropy in Ba(Fe 1-xCo x) 2As 2.
