We study the effect of quantum magnetic impurities on d‐wave spin density waves (d‐SDW). The impurity spins are aligned coherently according to the spin space anisotropy of the condensate. Both the order parameter and transition temperature increases due to the coherent interplay between magnetic scatterers and d‐SDW at fixed doping. By increasing the doping, the d‐SDW collapses. This can explain the recent experimental data on the pseudogap enhancement of Ni substituted NdBa2{Cu1−y Niy }O6.8…

Impurity scattering in unconventional density waves: non-crossing approximation for arbitrary scattering rate
We present a detailed theoretical study on the thermodynamic properties of impure quasi-one-dimensional unconventional charge and spin density waves in the framework of mean-field theory. The


Nickel impurity-induced enhancement of the pseudogap of cuprate high-T(c) superconductors.
The results challenge theories that relate the PG either to precursor superconductivity or to other phases with exotic order parameters, such as flux phase or d-density wave states, that should be suppressed by potential scattering.
Thermodynamics and optical conductivity of unconventional spin density waves
Abstract:We consider the possibility of formation of an unconventional spin density wave (USDW) in quasi-one-dimensional electronic systems. In analogy with unconventional superconductivity, we
Optical response for the d-density-wave model
We have calculated the optical conductivity and the Raman response for the $d$-density-wave model, proposed as a possible explanation for the pseudogap seen in high ${T}_{c}$ cuprates. The total
Closing the pseudogap by Zeeman splitting in Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+y at high magnetic fields.
Findings indicate a predominant role of spins over the orbital effects in the formation of the pseudogap, which shows strikingly different temperature and doping dependencies from the characteristic fields of the superconducting state.
Gap and pseudogap evolution within the charge-ordering scenario for superconducting cuprates
Abstract:We describe the spectral properties of underdoped cuprates as resulting from a momentum-dependent pseudogap in the normal-state spectrum. Such a model accounts, within a BCS approach, for
Spatial variation of d -density-wave order in the presence of impurities
Effect of finite density of nonmagnetic impurities on a coexisting phase of d-density wave (DDW) order and d-wave superconducting (DSC) order is studied using Bogoliubov-de Gennes (BdG) method. The
Theory of unconventional spin density wave: A possible mechanism of the micromagnetism in u-based heavy fermion compounds
We propose a novel spin density wave (SDW) state as a possible mechanism of the anomalous antiferromagnetism, so-called the micromagnetism, in URu_2Si_2 below 17.5[K]. In this new SDW, the
Imaging the effects of individual zinc impurity atoms on superconductivity in Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+δ
Scanning tunnelling microscopy is used to investigate the effects of individual zinc impurity atoms in the high-temperature superconductor Bi2Sr2CaCu 2O8+δ and reveals the long-sought four-fold symmetric quasiparticle ‘cloud’ aligned with the nodes of the d-wave superconducting gap which is believed to characterize superconductivity in these materials.
Magnetotransport in d-wave density waves
Angle-dependent magnetoresistance (ADMR) and giant Nernst effect are hallmarks of unconventional density waves (UDW). Here these transport properties for d-wave density wave (d-DW) are computed for
