The new development in sublattice-phase-resolved imaging of electronic structure now allow for the visualisation of the nematic-order state characteristic energy of cuprate superconductors in a wide doping regime. However, it is still unclear how this characteristic energy of the nematic-order state is correlated with the enhancement of superconductivity. Here the doping dependence of the nematic-order state characteristic energy in cuprate superconductors and of its possible connection to the…

Sixfold enhancement of superconductivity in a tunable electronic nematic system
The enhancement of superconductivity is reported in a model electronic nematic system that is not magnetic, and it is shown that the enhancement is directly born out of strong nematic fluctuations associated with a quantum phase transition.
Nematicity in a cuprate superconductor revealed by angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy under uniaxial strain
The nature of the pseudogap and its relationship with superconductivity are one of the central issues of cuprate superconductors. Recently, a possible scenario has been proposed that the pseudogap
Nematic Electronic Structure in the “Parent” State of the Iron-Based Superconductor Ca(Fe1–xCox)2As2
Nematic Electronic Order in Iron Superconductors The properties of many high-temperature superconductors vary strongly as the composition of a doping element changes, and at sufficient under- or
Thermodynamic evidence for a nematic phase transition at the onset of the pseudogap in YBa 2 Cu 3 O y
The pseudogap is an elusive state that is believed to play an important role in the mechanism for high-temperature superconductivity. A torque-magnetometry study of YBCO reveals that its onset is
Charge-induced nematicity in FeSe
The detection of critical nematic fluctuations in the charge channel in the Fe SC compound FeSe is reported and the strong enhancement of the associated nematic susceptibility allows us to link the appearance of nematicity to a symmetry-breaking distortion of the Fermi surface.
Electronic structure of cuprate superconductors in a full charge-spin recombination scheme
Abstract A long-standing unsolved problem is how a microscopic theory of superconductivity in cuprate superconductors based on the charge-spin separation can produce a large electron Fermi surface.
Evolution of Pairing Orders between Pseudogap and Superconducting Phases of Cuprate Superconductors
By studying a strongly correlated model at low temperatures, a phase characterized by two kinds of pairing order parameters is obtained with the total momentum of the Cooper pair to be zero and finite and the consequence of breaking symmetry between x and y due to the unidirectional PDW is discussed.
Electronic Liquid Crystal State in the High-Temperature Superconductor YBa2Cu3O6.45
The spontaneous onset of a one-dimensional, incommensurate modulation of the spin system in the high-transition-temperature superconductor YBa2Cu3O6 suggests that soft spin fluctuations are a microscopic route toward electronic liquid crystals and that nematic order can coexist with high-tem temperature superconductivity in underdoped cuprates.
Intra-unit-cell electronic nematicity of the high-Tc copper-oxide pseudogap states
The determination of a quantitative order parameter representing intra-unit-cell nematicity: the breaking of rotational symmetry by the electronic structure within each CuO2 unit cell is reported.
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
