We investigate the role of correlations in the tetragonal and collapsed tetragonal phases of CaFe2As2 by performing charge self-consistent DFT+DMFT (density functional theory combined with dynamical mean-field theory) calculations. While the topology of the Fermi surface is basically unaffected by the inclusion of correlation effects, we find important orbital-dependent mass renormalizations which show good agreement with recent angle-resolved photoemission experiments. Moreover, we observe a markedly different behavior of these quantities between the low-pressure tetragonal and the high-pressure collapsed tetragonal phase. We attribute these effects to the increased hybridization between the iron and arsenic orbitals as one enters the collapsed tetragonal phase.
