Motivated by recent quantum oscillation observations in the underdoped high-temperature superconductors, the effect of the short-range antiferromagnetic correlations on the electronic properties of the short-ranged d-density wave state is investigated. At intermediate d-density wave correlations, the cross section of the energy dispersion at the Fermi energy consists of hole pockets and an electron pocket. It is argued that the electron pocket feature is smeared out by the effect of the short… Expand
Quasiparticle Nernst effect in the cuprate superconductors from the d-density-wave theory of the pseudogap phase
We consider the Nernst effect in the underdoped regime of the cuprate high temperature superconductors within the d-density wave DDW model of the pseudogap phase. By a combination of analytical andExpand
Quantum oscillations in the high-Tc cuprates
Indications from quantum oscillation measurements of a low-energy Fermi surface instability at low dopings under the superconducting dome at the metal–insulator transition are reviewed, and potential implications for enhancedsuperconducting temperatures are discussed. Expand
Half-Skyrmion theory for high-temperature superconductivity
We review the half-Skyrmion theory for copper-oxide high-temperature superconductivity. In the theory, doped holes create a half-Skyrmion spin texture which is characterized by a topological charge.Expand
Multiple quantum oscillation frequencies in YBa2Cu3O6+δ and bilayer splitting
Experiments have revealed multiple quantum oscillation frequencies in underdoped high-temperature superconductor YBa2Cu3O6+δ, corresponding to approximately 10% doping, which contains CuO bilayers inExpand
Spectral Function of a $d-p$ Hubbard Model
This work investigates a d-p Hubbard model by the n-pole approximation in the hole-doped regime. In particular, the spectral function $A(\omega,\vec{k})$ is analyzed varying the filling, the localExpand


Cuprate Fermi orbits and Fermi arcs: the effect of short-range antiferromagnetic order.
It is shown that a reduced xi gives an asymmetric broadening of the quasiparticle dispersion, resulting in simulated ARPES data very similar to those observed in experiment, and predicted features include "Fermi arcs" close to ak=(pi/2, pi/2). Expand
Electron pockets in the Fermi surface of hole-doped high-Tc superconductors
The observation of a negative Hall resistance in the magnetic-field-induced normal state of YBa2Cu3Oy and Y ba2Cu4O8, which reveals that these pockets are electron-like rather than hole-like, is reported, suggesting that a Fermi surface reconstruction also occurs in those materials, pointing to a generic property of high-transition-temperature (Tc) superconductors.

Fermi pockets and quantum oscillations of the Hall coefficient in high-temperature superconductors
This work explains the observations with the theory that the alleged normal state exhibits a hidden order, the d-density wave, which breaks symmetries signifying time reversal, translation by a lattice spacing, and a rotation by an angle π/2, while the product of any two symmetry operations is preserved.

A multi-component Fermi surface in the vortex state of an underdoped high-Tc superconductor
Experiments on quantum oscillations in the magnetization in superconducting YBa2Cu3O6 that reveal more than one carrier pocket are reported, finding evidence for the existence of a much larger pocket of heavier mass carriers playing a thermodynamically dominant role in this hole-doped superconductor.

Quantum oscillations and the Fermi surface in an underdoped high-Tc superconductor
The observation of quantum oscillations in the electrical resistance of the oxygen-ordered copper oxide YBa2Cu3O6.5 establishes the existence of a well-defined Fermi surface in the ground state of underdoped copper oxides, once superconductivity is suppressed by a magnetic field. Expand

Destruction of the Fermi surface in underdoped high-Tc superconductors
The Fermi surface—the set of points in momentum space describing gapless electronic excitations—is a central concept in the theory of metals. In this context, the normal ‘metallic’ state of theExpand
Small Fermi surface pockets in underdoped high temperature superconductors: observation of Shubnikov-de Haas oscillations in YBa2Cu4O8.
Although small Fermi surface pockets may be expected from band-structure calculations in Y123-II, no such pockets are predicted for Y124, which implies that these small pockets are a generic feature of the copper oxide plane in underdoped cuprates. Expand
