Charge Carrier Dynamics at the Mott transition in κ-(BEDT-TTF)2Cu[N(CN)2]Br — •Tatjana Thomas1, Benedikt Hartmann1, Takahiko Sasaki2, and Jens Müller11Institute of Physics, Goethe University Frankfurt, Germany — 2Institute for Materials Research, Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan

The organic charge transfer salts κ-(ET)2X are considered as model systems for studying the Mott metal-insulator transition – a key phenomenon in the physics of strongly correlated electrons – in reduced dimensions. In particular, the influence of disorder on the criticality of the Mott transition recently has been a matter of debate. Partially deuterated κ-[(H8-ET)0.2(D8-ET)0.8]2Cu[N(CN)2]Br, which is located in the critical region of the phase diagram, can be fine-tuned through the Mott transition by utilizing a glass-like structural ordering transition of the ET molecules’ terminal ethylene groups. By applying different thermal relaxation protocols, both the ratio of W/U and a small degree of quenched disorder can be set at will, the former corresponding to changes in hydrostatic pressure of ∼200 bar. We employ fluctuation (noise) spectroscopy as a powerful tool to study the charge carrier dynamics at low frequencies. When crossing the S-shaped Mott transition line, surprisingly we observe a step-like increase of the resistance fluctuations in the metallic region. We discuss our results in terms of critical slowing down of the order parameter fluctuations [1] and electronic phase separation, and an extended region of the phase diagram where the fluctuations are non-Gaussian.
