We present new non-Ricci-flat Kähler metrics with U(N) and O(N) isometries as target manifolds of superconformally invariant sigma models with an anomalous dimension. They are so-called Ricci solitons, special solutions to a Ricci-flow equation. These metrics explicitly contain the anomalous dimension and reduce to Ricci-flat Kähler metrics on the canonical line bundles over certain coset spaces in the limit of vanishing anomalous dimension.
