When free vortices are present in the pseudogap region of underdoped cuprates, it is shown that the conventional Anderson-Higgs mechanism does not work because the Goldstone field is not an analytic function. However, after decomposing the Goldstone field into longitudinal and transverse components, we find that the former can be eliminated by a special gauge transformation and the gauge field becomes massive, but the latter persists in the theory in any case. Thus we obtain an extended… 

Decomposition of Gauge Potential in Ginzburg-Landau Theory

Recently, Liu et al. proposed a so-called extended Anderson–Higgs mechanism by studying the (2+1)-dimensional Ginzburg–Landau model in the pseudogap region of high-Tc superconductor (Phys. Rev. B 65

NEW APPLICATION OF DECOMPOSITION OF U(1) GAUGE POTENTIAL: AHARONOV–BOHM EFFECT AND ANDERSON–HIGGS MECHANISM

In this paper, we study the Aharonov–Bohm (A–B) effect and Anderson–Higgs mechanism in Ginzburg–Landau model of superconductors from the perspective of the decomposition of U(1) gauge potential. By

Searches for Supersymmetry in Di-Lepton Final States with the ATLAS Detector at √s = 7 TeV

The Standard Model (SM) of particle physics has been shown to describe, to great precision, many of the phenomena observed in Nature. With the recent discovery of the Higgs boson even the last

Topical Review: Molecular reaction and solvation visualized by time-resolved X-ray solution scattering: Structure, dynamics, and their solvent dependence

Recent studies on triiodide ion (I3–) and molecular iodine (I2) in solution are reviewed and the progression of geminate recombination and the associated structural change in the solvent cage is mapped out.

Chiral and deconfinement phase transitions in QED3 with finite gauge boson mass

Based on the experimental observation that there is a coexisting region between the antiferromagnetic (AF) and d-wave superconducting (dSC) phases, the influences of gauge boson mass ma on chiral

PROCEDURES OF GAUGE SYMMETRY BREAKING IN SUPERCONDUCTIVITY: COMMENT ON SPONTANEITY

The breakdown of the U(1) gauge invariance in conventional superconductivity is re-examined by drawing parallels between the BCS and Abelian Higgs models. The global and local U(1) symmetries are

Spontaneous Symmetry Breakdown without Massless Bosons

We examine a simple relativistic theory of two scalar fields, first discussed by Goldstone, in which as a result of spontaneous breakdown of U(1) symmetry one of the scalar bosons is massless, in

Plasmons, Gauge Invariance, and Mass

Schwinger has pointed out that the Yang-Mills vector boson implied by associating a generalized gauge transformation with a conservation law (of baryonic charge, for instance) does not necessarily

Effect of phase fluctuations on the single-particle properties of underdoped cuprates

We study the effect of order parameter phase fluctuations on the single-particle properties of fermions in the underdoped cuprate superconductors using a phenomenological low-energy theory. We

Phase fluctuations and spectral properties of underdoped cuprates

We consider the effect of classical phase fluctuations on the quasiparticle spectra of underdoped high- Tc cuprate superconductors in the pseudogap regime above Tc . We show that photoemission and

Symmetry Breaking in Non-Abelian Gauge Theories

According to the Goldstone theorem, any manifestly covariant broken-symmetry theory must exhibit massless particles. However, it is known from previous work that such particles need not appear in a

Dynamical Model of Elementary Particles Based on an Analogy with Superconductivity. II

It is suggested that the nucleon mass arises largely as a self-energy of some primary fermion field through the same mechanism as the appearance of energy gap in the theory of superconductivity. The

Algebraic Fermi liquid from phase fluctuations: "topological" fermions, vortex "berryons," and QED3 theory of cuprate superconductors.

Within the phase fluctuation model for the pseudogap state of cuprate superconductors, a novel statistical "Berry phase" interaction is identified between the nodal quasiparticles and fluctuating vortex-antivortex excitations which regulates the low energy fermiology.
