Abstract: The newly discovered high temperature superconductor SmFeAs(\(O_{1-x}F_x\)) shows a clear nematic transition where the square lattice of Fe ions has a rectangular distortion. Similar nematic ordering has also been observed in the cuprate superconductors. We provide a detailed theory of experimental observables near such a nematic transition: we calculate the scaling of specific heat, local density of states (LDOS) and NMR relaxation rate \(1/T_1T\).
