Abstract (englisch):
The interplay of electronic correlations, multi-orbital excitations, and spin-orbit coupling is a fertile ground for new states of matter in quantum materials. Here, we report on a polarized Raman scattering study of semimetallic SrIrO3. The momentum-space selectivity of Raman scattering allows to circumvent the challenge to resolve the dynamics of charges with very different mobilities. The Raman responses of both holes and electrons display an electronic continuum extending far beyond the energies allowed in a regular Fermi liquid. Analyzing this response within a memory function formalism, we extract their frequency dependent scattering rate and mass enhancement, from which we determine their DC-mobilities and electrical resistivities that agree well with transport measurement. We demonstrate that its charge dynamics is well described by a marginal Fermi liquid phenomenology, with a scattering rate close to the Planckian limit. This demonstrates the potential of this approach to investigate the charge dynamics in multi-band systems
