Abstract

By using variational quantum Monte Carlo techniques, we investigate the instauration of stripes (i.e., charge and spin inhomogeneities) in the Hubbard model on the square lattice at hole doping δ=1/8, with both nearest- (t) and next-nearest-neighbor hopping (t′). Stripes with different wavelengths λ (denoting the periodicity of the charge inhomogeneity) and character (bond- or site-centered) are stabilized for sufficiently large values of the electron-electron interaction U/t. The general trend is that λ increases going from negative to positive values of t′/t and decreases by increasing U/t. In particular, the λ=8 stripe obtained for t′=0 and U/t=8 [L.F. Tocchio, A. Montorsi, and F. Becca, SciPost Phys. 7, 21 (2019)] shrinks to λ=6 for U/t≳10. For t′/t<0, the stripe with λ=5 is found to be remarkably stable, while for t′/t>0, stripes with wavelength λ=12 and λ=16 are also obtained. In all these cases, pair-pair correlations are highly suppressed with respect to the uniform state (obtained for large values of |t′/t|), suggesting that striped states are not superconducting at δ=1/8.
