The cuprate high-temperature superconductors develop spontaneous charge density wave (CDW) order below a temperature TCDW and over a wide range of hole doping (p). An outstanding challenge in the field is to understand whether this modulated phase is related to the more exhaustively studied pseudogap and superconducting phases1,2. To address this issue, it is important to extract the energy scale ΔCDW associated with the CDW order, and to compare it with the pseudogap ΔPG and with the… 
Unified energy law for fluctuating density wave orders in cuprate pseudogap phase
The quantum origin of the cuprate pseudogap is a central conundrum of condensed matter physics. Although many symmetry-broken scenarios were previously proposed, universal quantitative relationships
Maximal superconductivity in proximity to the charge density wave quantum critical point in CuxTiSe2
Superconductivity emerges in 1T -TiSe2 when its charge density wave (CDW) order is suppressed by Cu intercalation or pressure. Since the CDW state is thought to be an excitonic insulator, an
Fractionalized pair density wave in the pseudogap phase of cuprate superconductors
The mysterious pseudo-gap (PG) phase of cuprate superconductors has been the subject of intense investigation over the last thirty years, but without a clear agreement about its origin. Owing to a
Locally commensurate charge-density wave with three-unit-cell periodicity in YBa2Cu3Oy
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).
Incipient loop-current order in the underdoped cuprate superconductors
There are growing experimental evidence which indicate discrete symmetry breaking like time-reversal ($\mathcal{T}$), parity ($\mathcal{P}$) and C$_{4}$ lattice rotation in the pseudo-gap state of
Direct Observation of Full-Gap Superconductivity and Pseudogap in Two-Dimensional Fullerides.
Cryogenic scanning tunneling microscopy is employed to show that trilayer K_{3}C_{60} displays fully gapped strong coupling s-wave superconductivity, accompanied by a pseudogap above T_{c}∼22  K and within vortices, which indicates that alkali fullerides are predominantly phonon-mediated superconductors, although the electronic correlations also come into play.
Unusual Dynamic Charge Correlations in Simple-Tetragonal HgBa2CuO4+δ
The charge-density-wave (CDW) instability in the underdoped, pseudogap part of the cuprate phase diagram has been a major recent research focus, yet measurements of dynamic, energy-resolved CDW
Observation of pseudogap in SnSe2 atomic layers grown on graphite
Superconducting metal dichalcogenides (MDCs) present several similarities to the other layered superconductors like cuprates. The superconductivity in atomically thin MDCs has been demonstrated by
Charge ordering in superconducting copper oxides.
The structure, periodicity, and stability range of the charge-ordered state, its response to various external perturbations, the influence of disorder, the coexistence and competition with superconductivity, as well as collective charge dynamics are discussed.
Hydrodynamical charge density wave description for transport in the strange metal phase of cuprates
The mechanism controlling the exotic behavior of the transport properties in the strange metallic phase of high temperature superconductors is one of the main unresolved problems in condensed matter


The rate of quasiparticle recombination probes the onset of coherence in cuprate superconductors
The results suggest that the superfluid in underdoped cuprates is a condensate of coherently-mixed particle-particle and particle-hole pairs.
Two energy scales and two distinct quasiparticle dynamics in the superconducting state of underdoped cuprates

Connecting high-field quantum oscillations to zero-field electron spectral functions in the underdoped cuprates.
This work treats quantum oscillations at high field beyond semiclassical approximations, and finds clear and robust signatures of an electron pocket compatible with existing observations, and compute the electronic spectrum in the presence of thermally fluctuating charge-density and superconducting orders.

One of the leading challenges of condensed matter physics in the past few decades is an understanding of the high-temperature copper-oxide superconductors. Although the d-wave character of the
Magnetic-field-induced charge-stripe order in the high-temperature superconductor YBa2Cu3Oy
Nuclear magnetic resonance measurements are reported showing that high magnetic fields actually induce charge order, without spin order, in the CuO2 planes of YBa2Cu3Oy, and it is argued that it is most probably the same 4a-periodic modulation as in stripe-ordered copper oxides.
Fragility of Charge Order Near an Antiferromagnetic Quantum Critical Point.
A strong suppression of charge order is found caused by the competing, leading superconducting instability near an antiferromagnetic quantum critical point using sign-problem-free Quantum Monte Carlo simulations.
Emergence of coherence in the charge-density wave state of 2H-NbSe2
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.
