Title: Systematic low-energy effective field theory for electron-doped antiferromagnets

Abstract

In contrast to hole-doped systems which have hole pockets centered at ({+-}({pi}/2a),{+-}({pi}/2a)), in lightly electron-doped antiferromagnets the charged quasiparticles reside in momentum space pockets centered at (({pi}/a),0) or (0,({pi}/a)). This has important consequences for the corresponding low-energy effective field theory of magnons and electrons which is constructed in this paper. In particular, in contrast to the hole-doped case, the magnon-mediated forces between two electrons depend on the total momentum P-vector of the pair. For P-vector=0, the one-magnon exchange potential between two electrons at distance r is proportional to 1/r{sup 4}, while in the hole case, it has a 1/r{sup 2} dependence. The effective theory predicts that spiral phases are absent in electron-doped antiferromagnets.
