 Abstract: Angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) is used to study the energy and momentum dependence of the inelastic scattering rates and the mass renormalization of charge carriers in LiFeAs at several high symmetry points in the Brillouin zone. A strong and linear-in-energy scattering rate is observed for sections of the Fermi surface having predominantly Fe 3d(xy/yz) orbital character on the inner hole and on electron pockets. We assign them to hot spots with marginal Fermi liquid character inducing high antiferromagnetic and pairing susceptibilities. The outer hole pocket, with Fe 3d(xy) orbital character, has a reduced but still linear in energy scattering rate. Finally, we assign sections on the middle hole pockets with Fe 3d(xz,yz) orbital character and on the electron pockets with Fe 3d(xy), orbital character to cold spots because there we observe a quadratic-in-energy scattering rate with Fermi-liquid behavior. These cold spots prevail the transport properties. Our results indicate a strong momentum dependence of the scattering rates. We also have indications that the scattering rates in correlated systems are fundamentally different from those in noncorrelated materials because in the former the Pauli principle is not operative. We compare our results for the scattering rates with combined density functional plus dynamical mean-field theory calculations. The work provides a generic microscopic understanding of macroscopic properties of multiorbital unconventional superconductors.
