Among the family of beta'-type X[Pd(dmit)2]2 (X: monovalent cation) salts , many become a dimer-type Mott insulator and then at low temperatures they show magnetic order or spin-liquid behavior. On the other hand, pressure or chemical modification brings about competition with metallic/superconducting states, and also with a peculiar charge ordering involving multi-orbitals. In this study, we construct an effective low-energy model which take into account the multi-orbital degree of freedom, and investigate their electronic states systematically.
We take fragments of molecular orbital (fragment MO; fMO) as a basis set of the model, of which HOMO and LUMO of the Pd(dmit)2 molecule are composed by linear combinations; each fMO becomes nearly localized on one of the dmit ligands. The inter-fMO transfer integrals are obtained for a series of salts X = EtxMe4-xZ (x = 0-2, Z = P, As, Sb) by fitting to the first-principles band calculations . We find that all the intra-dimer transfer integrals, including the diagonal ones, are appreciably large (0.2-0.3eV); this results in a modification of the orbital scheme in strongly dimerized [Pd(dmit)2]2 discussed in the literatures, then to the effective dimer model. We calculate possible spin and charge ordering based on mean-field approximation to the extended Hubbard model incorporating the fitted parameters.
