Abstract

The microscopic quantum interference associated with excitonic condensation in Ta2NiSe5 is studied in a BCS-type mean-field approximation. We show that in ultrasonic attenuation the coherence peak appears just below the transition temperature Tc, whereas in NMR spin-lattice relaxation the rate rapidly decreases below Tc; these observations can offer a crucial experimental test for the validity of the excitonic condensation scenario in Ta2NiSe5. We also show that excitonic condensation manifests itself in a jump of the heat capacity at Tc as well as in a softening of the elastic shear constant, in accordance with the second-order phase transition observed in Ta2NiSe5.
