Elastoresistivity in the incommensurate charge density wave phase of BaNi(AsP)

Electronic nematicity, the breaking of the crystal lattice rotational symmetry by the electronic fluid, is a fascinating quantum state of matter. In this work, using electronic transport under strain we investigate the electronic nematicity of BaNi2(As1−xPx)2, a candidate system for charge-induced nematicity. We report a large B1g elastoresistance coefficient that is maximized at the tetragonal-to-orthorhombic transition temperature, that slightly precedes the first-order triclinic transition. An hysteretic behavior is observed in the resistance versus strain sweeps and interpreted as the pinning of orthorhombic domains. Remarkably, the elastoresistance only onsets together with a strong enhancement of the incommensurate charge density wave of the material, strongly suggesting that this electronic instability is uniaxial in nature and drive the orthorhombic transition. The absence of sizeable elastoresistance above this electronic phase clearly contrasts dynamic and static electronic nematicity. Finally, the elastoresistance temperature dependence that strongly differs from the Curie-Weiss form of iron-based superconductors reveals major differences for the respective coupling of electronic nematicity to the lattice. Our results uncover an extremely strain-sensitive platform to study electronic anisotropy induced by a charge-density-wave instability.
