Abstract

The zero- and low-temperature behaviors of a quasi-one-dimensional organic polymer proposed as a symmetrical periodic Anderson-like chain model, in which the localized f orbitals hybridize with the conduction orbitals at even sites, are investigated by means of many-body Green's function theory. In the absence of magnetic field, the ground state of the system turns out to be ferrimagnetic. The temperature-induced phase diagrams have been explored, where the competition between the Hubbard repulsion U on the localized f orbital and the hybridization strength V makes an important impact on the transition temperature. In a magnetic field, it is found that a 1/3 magnetization plateau appears and two critical fields indicating the insulator–metal transitions at zero temperature emerge, which are closely related to the energy bands. Furthermore, the single-site entanglement entropy is a good indicator of quantum phase transitions. The temperature-field-induced phase diagram has also been attained, wherein the magnetization plateau state, the gapless phase and the spin polarized state are revealed. The temperature dependence of thermodynamic quantities such as the magnetization, susceptibility and specific heat are calculated to characterize the corresponding phases. It is also found that the up-spin and down-spin hole excitations are responsible for the thermodynamic properties.
