Abstract
We have investigated the electronic structures and magnetic properties of a newly discovered hydrocarbon superconductor, K3picene, having T c = 18 K. We have shown that the metal-insulator transition is driven in K3picene by 5% volume enhancement with the formation of the local magnetic moment. Active bands for the superconductivity near the Fermi level (EF) have hybridized character of LUMO and LUMO+1 of the picene molecule. Fermi surfaces of K3picene manifest neither prominent nesting feature nor marked two-dimensional behavior. By estimating the ratio of the Coulomb interaction, U, and the bandwidth, W, of the active bands near EF, we have demonstrated that K3picene is located in the vicinity of the Mott transition. Our findings suggest that K3picene is a strongly correlated electron system. © 2011 American Physical Society.
