Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Entanglement of spin and orbital Kondo effect is investigated on the basis of a Kondo-type exchange model with an orbital degeneracy. In the presence of particle-hole symmetry, we show that the model has a new non-Fermi-liquid fixed point with a fractional entropy. The spectral intensity of the quadrupole susceptibility diverges in the zero-frequency limit, while the dipole susceptibility shows a Fermi-liquid-like behavior. Even for a fairly particle-hole asymmetric case with the Fermi-liquid ground state, the non-Fermi-liquid behavior has significant influences on electric and thermal properties.
