A spin-glass compound, ${\mathrm{La}}_{1.98}{\mathrm{Sr}}_{0.02}{\mathrm{CuO}}_{4},$ shows quasi-three-dimensional magnetic ordering below $\ensuremath{\sim}40 \mathrm{}\mathrm{K}.$ A remarkable feature is that the magnetic correlation length along the orthorhombic ${a}_{\mathrm{ortho}}$ axis is much longer than that along the ${b}_{\mathrm{ortho}}$ axis, suggesting that the spin structure is closely related to the diagonal stripe structure. The spin-glass state can be expressed as a random…

Spin-glass phase of cuprates

We investigate a phenomenological model for the spin-glass phase of ${\mathrm{La}}_{2\ensuremath{-}\mathrm{x}}{\mathrm{Sr}}_{\mathrm{x}}{\mathrm{CuO}}_{4},$ in which it is assumed that holes doped


Anelastic relaxation and 139La NQR relaxation measurements in La2-xSrxCuO4 with x ≃ 0.02 are discussed in terms of spin and lattice excitations, ordering processes and thermal depinning of charged

Slave-boson approach to the metallic stripe phases with large unit cells

Using a rotationally invariant version of the slave-boson approach in spin space we analyze the stability of stripe phases with large unit cells in the two-dimensional Hubbard model. This approach

Properties of domain walls and magnetoresistance in low-doped La2−ySryCuO4

The properties of the diagonal stripe structures of the Hubbard model are theoretically studied in relation to the incommensurate spin order and the magnetic effects detected in the dielectric phase

Numerical evidence of fluctuating stripes in the normal state of high-Tc cuprate superconductors

Dynamical stripe correlations in the three-band Hubbard model is demonstrated, which is robust to varying parameters, cluster size, and boundary conditions, and support the interpretation of experimental observations such as the hourglass magnetic dispersion and the Yamada plot of incommensurability versus doping in terms of the physics of fluctuating stripes.

Variable range hopping in the spin-glass phase of La2−xSrxCuO4

The results of the in-plane transport measurements of strongly underdoped La2−xSrxCuO4 films in magnetic fields up to 14 T and at temperatures down to 1.6 K are presented. While at high temperatures

Stripe phases—possible ground state of the high-Tc superconductors

Based on the mean-field method applied either to the extended single-band Hubbard model or to the single-band Peierls–Hubbard Hamiltonian we study the stability of both site-centered and

Ferroelectricity in underdoped La-based cuprates

It is demonstrated that ferroelectricity and the associated magnetoelectric coupling are in fact common in La-214 cuprates namely, La 2-xSrxCuO4, La2LixCu1-xO4 and La2 CuO4+x.
