Abstract

We study phase diagrams of the Hubbard model on anisotropic triangular lattices, which also represents a model for κ-type BEDT-TTF compounds. In contrast with mean-field predictions, path-integral renormalization group calculations show a universal presence of a nonmagnetic insulator sandwiched by an antiferromagnetic insulator and paramagnetic metals. The nonmagnetic phase does not show simple translational symmetry breakings such as flux phases, implying a genuine Mott insulator. We discuss possible relevance to the nonmagnetic insulating phase found in κ-(ET)2Cu 2(CN)3.
