Abstract

We report infrared spectroscopic properties of the strongly correlated layered cobalt oxide [BiBa0.66K0.36O2]CoO2. These measurements, performed on single crystals, allow us to determine the optical conductivity as a function of the temperature. In addition to a large temperature-dependent transfer of spectral weight, an unconventional low-energy mode is found. We show that both its frequency and its damping scale as the temperature itself. In fact, a basic analysis demonstrates that this mode fully scales onto a function of ω/T up to room temperature. This behavior suggests low-energy excitations of non-Fermi liquid type originating from quantum criticality.
