One view of the high-transition-temperature (high-Tc) copper oxide superconductors is that they are conventional superconductors where the pairing occurs between weakly interacting quasiparticles (corresponding to the electrons in ordinary metals), although the theory has to be pushed to its limit. An alternative view is that the electrons organize into collective textures (for example, charge and spin stripes) which cannot be ‘mapped’ onto the electrons in ordinary metals. Understanding the… 

Three-dimensionality of field-induced magnetism in a high-temperature superconductor

It is shown that, in contrast to the chemically controlled order in superconducting samples, the field-induced order in these same samples is actually three-dimensional, implying significant magnetic linkage between the CuO2 planes and the underlying antiferromagnetism of the cuprates.

High-Tc Superconductivity and Antiferromagnetism in Multilayered Copper Oxides –A New Paradigm of Superconducting Mechanism–

High-temperature superconductivity (HTSC) in copper oxides emerges on a layered CuO 2 plane when an antiferromagnetic Mott insulator is doped with mobile hole carriers. We review extensive studies of

Hole-doping driven antiparallel magnetic order underlying the superconducting and pseudogap states in high-temperature cuprate superconductor

Unveiling the nature of the pseudogap and its relation to both superconductivity and antiferromagnetic Mott insulators, the pairing mechanism, and a non-Fermi liquid phase is a key issue for

Magnetic Ordering Phenomena and Dynamic Fluctuations in Cuprate Superconductors and Insulating Nickelates

Publisher Summary This chapter discusses the stripes and resonance peaks of single- and multi-layered cuprates and related nickelates. Superconductors with surprisingly high superconducting

Protected superconductivity at the boundaries of charge-density-wave domains

Solid 4He may acquire superfluid characteristics due to the frustration of the solid phase at grain boundaries. Here, introducing a negative-U generalized Hubbard model and a coarse-grained

A hidden pseudogap under the ‘dome’ of superconductivity in electron-doped high-temperature superconductors

The existence of a second order parameter hidden within the superconducting phase of the underdoped and newly synthesized electron-doped material La2-xCexCuO4-y supports the picture that the physics of high-Tc superconductors is determined by the interplay between competing and coexisting ground states.

Striped superconductors: how spin, charge and superconducting orders intertwine in the cuprates

Recent transport experiments in the original cuprate high temperature superconductor, La2−xBaxCuO4, have revealed a remarkable sequence of transitions and crossovers that give rise to a form of

Disorder- and Field-Induced Antiferromagnetism in Cuprate Superconductors

Abstract The underdoped high-Tc materials are characterized by a competition between Cooper pairing and antiferromagnetic (AF) order. Important differences between the superconducting (SC) state of

From high temperature superconductivity to quantum spin liquid: progress in strong correlation physics

This review gives a rather general discussion of high temperature superconductors as an example of a strongly correlated material. The argument is made that in view of the many examples of

Electronic duality in strongly correlated matter

It is shown that the single 4f electron of cerium in CeRhIn5 simultaneously produces magnetism, characteristic of localization, and superconductivity that requires itinerancy.



Antiferromagnetic vortex state in a high-temperature superconductor

There is strong evidence that magnetic interactions play a crucial role in the mechanism driving high-temperature superconductivity in cuprate superconductors. To investigate this further we have

Evidence for stripe correlations of spins and holes in copper oxide superconductors

ONE of the long-standing mysteries associated with the high-temperature copper oxide superconductors concerns the anomalous suppression1 of superconductivity in La2-xBaxCuO4 (and certain related

Electronic liquid-crystal phases of a doped Mott insulator

The character of the ground state of an antiferromagnetic insulator is fundamentally altered following addition of even a small amount of charge. The added charge is concentrated into domain walls

Spin gap and magnetic coherence in a clean high-temperature superconductor

A notable aspect of high-temperature superconductivity in the copper oxides is the unconventional nature of the underlying paired-electron state. A direct manifestation of the unconventional state is

Weak-coupling theory of high-temperature superconductivity in the antiferromagnetically correlated copper oxides.

It is found that the effective quasiparticle interaction responsible for superconductivity possesses considerable structure in both momentum and frequency space, and that if one wishes to obtain quantitatively meaningful results it is essential to allow for that structure in solving the full integral equations that determine the superconducting transition temperature and thesuperconducting properties.

Magnetic Vortices in High Temperature Superconductors

It is suggested that modes, observed in recent neutron scattering experiments by Lake {\it et al.}, on La$_{2-x}$Sr$_x$CuO$_4$ in strong magnetic fields ($\approx$ 7 T), are due to the existence of

Neutron-scattering study of spin-density wave order in the superconducting state of excess-oxygen-doped La 2 CuO 4+y

Spin-ordering quantum transitions of superconductors in a magnetic field.

We argue that recent neutron scattering measurements by Lake et al. [Science 291, 1759 (2001)] of the spin excitation spectrum of La(2-delta)Sr(delta)CuO4 in a magnetic field can be understood in
