We have obtained images of the Trapezium Cluster (140 ′′ × 140 ′′ ; 0.3 pc × 0.3 pc) with the Hubble Space Telescope Near-Infrared Camera and Multi-Object Spectrometer (NICMOS). Combining these data with new ground-based K-band spectra (R = 800) and existing spectral types and photometry, we have constructed an H-R diagram and used it and other arguments to… (More)
Recent scanning tunneling microscopy experiments of Bi(2)Sr(2)CaCu(2)O(8+delta) have shown evidence of real-space organization of electronic states at low energies in the pseudogap state [Science 303, 1995 (2004)]]. We argue based on symmetry considerations as well as model calculations that the experimentally observed modulations are due to a density wave… (More)
We propose a microscopic state for the vortex phase of BSCO superconductors. Around the vortex core or above H(c2), the d wave hole pairs form a checkerboard localized in the antiferromagnetic background. We discuss this theory in connection with recent STM experiments.
We show that effective superconducting orders generally emerge at low energy in the superconducting state of graphene with conventionally defined pairing symmetry. We study a particular interesting example, the d x 2 −y 2 + id xy Ј spin singlet pairing state in graphene which can be generated by electronic correlation. We find that effectively the d +… (More)
By numerically solving models with competing superconducting and antiferromagnetic orders, we study the magnetic field dependence of the antiferromagnetic moment in both the weak and strong field regimes. Through a comparison with the neutron scattering results of Kang et al. and Matsuura et al. on Nd(1.85)Ce(0.15)CuO4, we conclude that this system is close… (More)
