Abstract

We study the excitonic phase and low-energy excitation spectra of perovskite cobalt oxides. Constructing the fiveorbital Hubbard model defined on the three-dimensional cubic lattice for the 3d bands of Pr0.5Ca0.5CoO3, we calculate the excitonic susceptibility in the normal state in the random-phase approximation (RPA) to show the presence of the instability toward excitonic condensation. On the basis of the excitonic ground state with a magnetic multipole obtained in the mean-field approximation, we calculate the dynamical susceptibility of the excitonic phase in the RPA and find that there appear a gapless collective excitation in the spin-transverse mode (Goldstone mode) and a gapful collective excitation in the spin-longitudinal mode (Higgs mode). The experimental relevance of our results is discussed.
