We study the plasma branch of an homogeneous three-dimensional electron gas in an s -wave superconducting state. We focus on the regime where the plasma frequency ω p is comparable to the gap ∆ , which is experimentally realized in cuprates. Although a sum rule guarantees that the departure of the plasma branch always coincides with the plasma frequency, the dispersion and lifetime of the plasmons is strongly affected by the presence of the pair condensate, especially at energies close to the…

Random-Phase Approximation in the Theory of Superconductivity

Josephson Plasmon Resonance in Tl2Ba2CaCu2O8 High‐Temperature Superconductor Tunable Terahertz Metamaterials

The Josephson plasmon resonance (JPR) offers a valuable probe to investigate the superconductivity in layered cuprate superconductors. However, the coupling between free space radiation and JPR in

Collective modes and terahertz near-field response of superconductors

We theoretically study the low energy electromagnetic response of BCS type superconductors focusing on propagating collective modes that are observable with THz near field optics. The interesting

Linear response of a superfluid Fermi gas inside its pair-breaking continuum

The existence of a Popov-Andrianov-“Higgs” resonance is a robust, generic feature of the high-energy phenomenology of pair-condensed Fermi gases, and should be accessible to state-of-the-art cold atom experiments.

Branche d’excitation collective du continuum dans les gaz de fermions condensés par paires : étude analytique et lois d’échelle

Les gaz de fermions de spin 1/2 non polarises condenses par paires presentent une branche d'excitation collective dans leur continuum de paire brisee (V.A. Andrianov, V.N. Popov, 1976). Nous en

Excitons and Plasmons in Superconductors

The Anderson-Rickayzen equations of motion for a superconductor derived within the random-phase approximation are used to investigate the collective excitations of superconductors. A spherical

On the Plasma Oscillation in Superconductivity.

The plasma mode in the superconducting state is studied within the random phase approximation. It is proved that the plasma oscillation in the limit of zero momentum ( q ) is not affected by the

Goldstone Mode in Charged Superconductivity: Theoretical Studies of the Carlson-Goldman Mode and Effects of the Landau Damping in the Superconducting State

We investigate the collective phase oscillations in superconductivity, i.e., the Carlson-Goldman mode in the charged system and the phason in the neutral, focusing on their velocities and how they


A functional integral formulation, used previously to calculate T{sub c} and describe normal state properties of the BCS-Bose crossover, is extended to T{lt}T{sub c}. The saddle point approximation
