Fine structure in the tunneling spectra of electron-doped cuprates: no coupling to the magnetic resonance mode.


We reanalyze high-resolution scanning tunneling spectra of the electron-doped cuprate Pr(0.88)LaCe(0.12)CuO(4) (T(c) = 24 K). We find that the spectral fine structure below 35 meV is consistent with strong coupling to a bosonic mode at about 16 meV, in quantitative agreement with early tunneling spectra of Nd(1.85)Ce(0.15)CuO(4). Since the energy of the… (More)
