We compared four hole-scales that have been used to determine the hole-concentration in high-temperature cuprate superconductors. We show that the hole-scale, $P_{pl}$-scale, based on the thermoelectric power [T. Honma $et$ $al$., Phys. Rev. B70, (2004) 214517.] is quantitatively consistent with spectroscopic probes for many different cuprate materials, while the other hole-scales, based on a well-known dome-shaped $T_c$-curve [M. R. Presland $et$ $al$., Physica C176, 95 (1991)], the $c$-axis… 


Magnetic order in the pseudogap phase of HgBa 2 CuO 4+δ studied by spin-polarized neutron diffraction
Spin-polarized neutron diffraction experiments have revealed an unusual $q=0$ magnetic order in the model high-temperature superconductor HgBa${}_{2}$CuO${}_{4+\ensuremath{\delta}}$ (Hg1201) below
Universal scaling of the c-axis dc conductivity for underdoped high-temperature cuprate superconductors
Abstract The coexistence of ‘metallic-like’ in-plane dc conductivity and ‘semiconducting-like’ out-of-plane ( c -axis) dc conductivity ( σ c ) , generating huge anisotropy in underdoped
Microscopic electronic inhomogeneity in the high-Tc superconductor Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+x
The presence of an electronic inhomogeneity is reported in Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+x, a consequence of proximity to a Mott insulator resulting in poor screening of the charge potentials associated with the oxygen ions left in the BiO plane after doping, and is indicative of the local nature of the superconducting state.
Evidence for competing magnetic instabilities in underdoped $\rm YBa_2Cu_3O_{6+x}$
We report a polarized neutron scattering study of the orbital-like magnetic order in strongly underdoped ${\rm YBa_2Cu_3O_{6.45}}$ and ${\rm YBa_2(Cu_{0.98}Zn_{0.02})_3O_{6.6}}$. Their hole doping
Systematics in the thermoelectric power of high-Tc oxides.
Thermoelectric power (TEP) measurements reported here as a function of p for a number of oxides reveal close similarities in the TEP of several compounds and a change in sign of the room-temperature TEP near the maximum T c.
Mobility of the doped holes and the antiferromagnetic correlations in underdoped high- Tc cuprates.
An incoherent-metal picture and a charged-stripe scenario are discussed as candidates to account for these peculiar features of the metallic charge transport in the La2-xSrxCuO4 system.
General trends in oxygen stoichiometry effects on Tc in Bi and Tl superconductors
Abstract We have previously shown that Tc for Bi2 (Sr, Ca)n+1CunO2n+4+δ (n=1, 2 and 3) varies with oxygen stoichiometry δ determined by annealing in a variety of oxygen partial pressures and
Unusual magnetic order in the pseudogap region of the superconductor HgBa2CuO4+δ
P polarized neutron diffraction is used to demonstrate for the model superconductor HgBa2CuO4+δ (Hg1201) that the characteristic temperature T* marks the onset of an unusual magnetic order, a demonstration of the universal existence of such a state.
Emergence of Particle-Hole Symmetry near Optimal Doping in High-Temperature Copper Oxide Superconductors
As charge carriers are doped into the wide family of parent copper-oxide ceramics (cuprates), superconductivity obtains with a maximum transition temperature at a particular chemical composition. The
Universal intrinsic doping behavior of in-plane dc conductivity for hole-doped high-temperature cuprate superconductors
Abstract Understanding the normal state transport properties in hole-doped high-temperature cuprate superconductors (HTCSs) is a challenging task which has been widely believed to be one of the key
