Spatial locality of electronic correlations in LiFeAs

We address the question of the degree of spatial nonlocality of the self-energy in the iron-based superconductors, a subject which is receiving considerable attention. Using LiFeAs as a prototypical example, we extract the self-energy from angular-resolved photoemission spectroscopy data. We use two distinct electronic structure references: density functional theory in the local density approximation and linearized quasiparticle self-consistent GW (LQSGW). We find that with the LQSGW reference, spatially local dynamical correlations provide a consistent description of the experimental data, and account for some surprising aspects of the data such as the substantial out-of-plane dispersion of the electron Fermi surface having dominant xz/yz character. Hence, correlations effects can be separated into static nonlocal contributions well described by LQSGW and dynamical local contributions. Hall effect and resistivity data are shown to be consistent with this description.
