ARPES on HTSC: simplicity vs. complexity

  title={ARPES on HTSC: simplicity vs. complexity},
  author={Alexander A. Kordyuk and Sergey V. Borisenko},
A notable role in understanding of microscopic electronic properties of high temperature superconductors (HTSC) belongs to angle resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES). This technique supplies a direct window into reciprocal space of solids: the momentum-energy space where quasiparticles (the electrons dressed in clouds of interactions) dwell. Any interaction in the electronic system, e.g. superconducting pairing, leads to modification of the quasi-particle spectrum--to redistribution of…

Superstripes and Complexity in High-Temperature Superconductors
While for many years the lattice, electronic and magnetic complexity of high-temperature superconductors (HTS) has been considered responsible for hindering the search of the mechanism of HTS, now
Electronic band structure of optimal superconductors: From cuprates to ferropnictides and back again (Review Article)
While the beginning decade of the high-Tc cuprates era passed under domination of local theories, Abrikosov was one of the few who took seriously the electronic band structure of cuprates, stressing
Linkage between scattering rates and superconductivity in doped ferropnictides
We report an angle-resolved photoemission study of a series of doped ferropnictides. We focus on the energy dependent scattering rate Gamma(E) of the inner hole pocket, which is the hot spot in these
Two Gaps Make a High Temperature Superconductor
One of the keys to the high-temperature superconductivity puzzle is the identification of the energy scales associated with the emergence of a coherent condensate of superconducting electron pairs.
High Tc in cuprates as a universal property of the electron–phonon system
The Eliashberg theory, which is generalized due to peculiar properties of the finite-width electron band for electron–phonon (EP) systems with a variable electron density of states (DOS), as well as
Electronic Structure of Kinetic Energy Driven Cuprate Superconductors
In this paper, we review the low energy electronic structure of the kinetic energy driven d-wave cuprate superconductors. We give a general description of the charge-spin separation fermion-spin
Superconductivity above a quantum critical point in a metal: Gap closing versus gap filling, Fermi arcs, and pseudogap behavior
We consider a quantum-critical metal with interaction mediated by fluctuations of a critical order parameter. This interaction gives rise to two competing tendencies -- pairing and non-Fermi liquid
How does the break-junction quasiparticle tunnel conductance look like for d-wave superconductors?
The bias-voltage, V, dependences of the differential tunnel conductance G(V) = dJ/DV were calculated for the quasiparticle current J flowing in the ab plane across the break junction made of d-wave
