  • Twenty-five years on from its discovery, high-temperature superconductivity remains without a satisfactory explanation. The latest studies on the electronic phase diagram of copper oxide compounds reveal why this is so. See Letter p.73 The relative importance of phenomena such as spin and charge (stripe) order and a pseudogap phase are still a matter of great debate with regard to the high-transition-temperature copper oxides. In electron-doped materials, the absence of a pseudogap phase in… CONTINUE READING
