Abstract: Recent experimental study revealed the optical conductivity of La 1-xCaxMnO3 over a wide range of energy and the occurrence of spectral weight transfer as the system transforms from a paramagnetic insulating to a ferromagnetic metallic phase. We propose a model and calculation within the dynamical mean-field theory to explain this phenomenon. We find the role of oxygens in mediating the hopping of electrons between manganeses as the key that determines the structures of the optical conductivity. In addition, by parametrizing the hopping integrals through magnetization, our result suggests a possible scenario that explains the occurrence of spectral weight transfer, in which the ferromagnetic ordering increases the rate of electron transfer from O2p orbitals to upper Mneg orbitals while simultaneously decreasing the rate of electron transfer from O2p orbitals to lower Mneg orbitals, as temperature is varied across the ferromagnetic transition. With this scenario, our optical conductivity calculation shows very good quantitative agreement with the experimental data. © 2011 American Physical Society.
