Abstract: L14.00008 : Orbital-Selective Pairing and Nematic Order in the Iron-Based Superconductors*

The considerations of the orbital-selective Mott phase in the normal state [1,2] motivated the theoretical proposal for orbital-selective pairing . The experimental evidence for the latter has come from both the iron pnictides  and iron selenides . Motivated by the recent experiments, we theoretically study the role of the nematic order in the orbital-selective pairing within multi-orbital models for superconductivity driven by short-range magnetic exchange interactions. We consider several ways that characterize the nematicity in the Hamiltonian, and present systematic results on how the pairing-state competition , the orbital dependency of the intra-orbital pairing amplitudes, the pairing symmetry and the gap anisotropy depend on the nematicity.
