Significance Charge correlations have now been identified in the low-temperature phase of essentially all families of underdoped cuprates, but in two apparently distinct types. The first hosts locked charge and spin stripes of which the material La1.875Ba0.125CuO4 (LBCO 1/8) is a paradigmatic example. In the second type, a charge density wave (CDW) exists without any obviously related spin correlations. Here we report the discovery of high-temperature CDW correlations that exist at temperatures… 
Charge density wave memory in a cuprate superconductor
TLDR
It is found that a reproducible CDW domain memory effect upon repeated cycling to temperatures well above the CDW ordering temperature is discovered.
Dynamical charge density fluctuations pervading the phase diagram of a Cu-based high-Tc superconductor
TLDR
A comprehensive study of charge density fluctuations in a cuprate family, varying doping and temperature found that short-range dynamic charge fluctuations were present in a large portion of the phase diagram, at temperatures considerably higher than those at which the CDW order disappears.
Incommensurate phonon anomaly and the nature of charge density waves in cuprates
While charge density wave (CDW) instabilities are ubiquitous to superconducting cuprates, the different ordering wavevectors in various cuprate families have hampered a unified description of the CDW
Scaling behavior of low-temperature orthorhombic domains in the prototypical high-temperature superconductor La1.875Ba0.125CuO4
Translational/rotational symmetry breaking and recovery in condensed matter systems are closely related to exotic physical properties such as superconductivity (SC), magnetism, spin density waves
Locally commensurate charge-density wave with three-unit-cell periodicity in YBa2Cu3Oy
TLDR
It is shown that, at the local scale probed by NMR, long-range CDW order in YBa2Cu3Oy is unidirectional with a commensurate period of three unit cells (λ = 3b), implying that the incommensurability found in X-ray scattering is ensured by phase slips (discommensurations).
Disorder raises the critical temperature of a cuprate superconductor
TLDR
This work finds that disorder created by irradiation increases the superconducting critical temperature by 50% while suppressing the CDW order, showing that CDWs strongly hinder bulk superconductivity, and establishes irradiation-induced disorder as a particularly relevant tuning parameter for the many families of superconductors with coexisting density waves.
Formation of Incommensurate Charge Density Waves in Cuprates
Although charge density waves (CDWs) are omnipresent in cuprate high-temperature superconductors, they occur at significantly different wavevectors, confounding efforts to understand their formation

TLDR
This work investigates underdoped Bi2Sr1.4La0.6CuO6+δ using resonant inelastic X-ray scattering (RIXS) and finds that a short-range CDW exists at both Cu and O sublattices in the copper-oxide planes with a comparable periodicity and correlation length and uncovers bond-stretching and bond-buckling phonon anomalies concomitant to the CDWs.
Re-entrant charge order in overdoped (Bi,Pb)2.12Sr1.88CuO6+δ outside the pseudogap regime
In the underdoped regime, the cuprate high-temperature superconductors exhibit a host of unusual collective phenomena, including unconventional spin and charge density modulations, Fermi surface
Anomalies in the pseudogap phase of the cuprates: Competing ground states and the role of umklapp scattering.
TLDR
This work advocates, with the support of both microscopic theoretical calculations and experimental data, dividing the high-temperature cuprate superconductors into two corresponding families, whose properties reflect either the type A or type B ground states at low temperatures.

Long-Range Incommensurate Charge Fluctuations in (Y,Nd)Ba2Cu3O6+x
A State of High Tc Superconductivity There are strong indications that high-temperature superconductivity in the cuprates is formed amid competing orders, but only two have been observed
Inhomogeneity of charge-density-wave order and quenched disorder in a high-Tc superconductor
TLDR
Micro X-ray diffraction imaging of the spatial distribution of both short-range charge- density-wave ‘puddles’ and quenched disorder in HgBa2CuO4 + y, the single-layer cuprate with the highest Tc, 95 kelvin found that the charge-density-wave puddles have a fat-tailed size distribution that is typical of self-organization near a critical point.
Remarkable Stability of Charge Density Wave Order in La1.875Ba0.125CuO4
The occurrence of charge-density-wave (CDW) order in underdoped cuprates is now well established, although the precise nature of the CDW and its relationship with superconductivity is not.
Ubiquitous Interplay Between Charge Ordering and High-Temperature Superconductivity in Cuprates
TLDR
This work used scanning tunneling microscopy and resonant elastic x-ray scattering measurements to establish the formation of charge ordering in the high-temperature superconductor Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+x, indicating the similarity of charge organization competing with superconductivity across different families of cuprates.
Rotated stripe order and its competition with superconductivity in La1.88Sr0.12CuO4

Emergence of coherence in the charge-density wave state of 2H-NbSe2
TLDR
It is found that, either at high temperature or at large intercalation, CDW order becomes short-ranged with a well-defined amplitude, which has impacts on the electronic dispersion, giving rise to an energy gap.
Charge order and its connection with Fermi-liquid charge transport in a pristine high-T(c) cuprate.
TLDR
The observation of charge-density-wave correlations in the model cuprate superconductor HgBa2CuO(4+δ) (T(c)=72 K) via bulk Cu L3-edge-resonant X-ray scattering points to a unifying picture in which these two phenomena are preceded at the higher pseudogap temperature by q=0 magnetic order and the build-up of significant dynamic antiferromagnetic correlations.
Quenched disorder and vestigial nematicity in the pseudogap regime of the cuprates
TLDR
It is shown that any discrete symmetry-breaking aspect of the charge order—nematicity in the case of the unidirectional CDW the authors consider explicitly—generically survives up to a nonzero critical disorder strength.
Spin excitations in a single La2CuO4 layer.
TLDR
It is shown that coherent magnetic excitations, magnons, known from the bulk order, persist even in a single layer of La(2)CuO(4), with no evidence for more complex correlations such as resonating valence bond correlations.
