A term first coined by Mott back in 1968 a `pseudogap' is the depletion of the electronic density of states at the Fermi level, and pseudogaps have been observed in many systems. However, since the discovery of the high temperature superconductors (HTSC) in 1986, the central role attributed to the pseudogap in these systems has meant that by many researchers now associate the term pseudogap exclusively with the HTSC phenomenon. Recently, the problem has got a lot of new attention with the… Expand

Recent progress is reviewed in understanding the relationship between superconductivity and the pseudogap, the Fermi arc phenomena, and the relationships between charge order and Pseudogap from the perspective of ARPES measurements. Expand
Electronic band structure of optimal superconductors: From cuprates to ferropnictides and back again (Review Article)
While the beginning decade of the high-Tc cuprates era passed under domination of local theories, Abrikosov was one of the few who took seriously the electronic band structure of cuprates, stressingExpand
Spectral functions of Sr2IrO4: theory versus experiment.
Recent work in the theoretical description of the spectral function of pure and electron-doped Sr2IrO4 based on a cluster extension of dynamical mean-field theory ('oriented-cluster DMFT') is reviewed and extended and compared to available angle-resolved photoemission data. Expand
Structural analysis of the precursor pseudogap in cuprate superconductors
Abstract We investigate the precursor pseudogap (PP) state that emerges on the lower temperature side of the pseudogap phase in cuprate superconductors based on the characteristic layer structure.Expand
Emergence of pseudogap from short-range spin-correlations in electron-doped cuprates
Complex electron interactions underlie the electronic structure of several families of quantum materials. In particular, the strong electron Coulomb repulsion is considered the key ingredient toExpand
A tale of two metals: contrasting criticalities in the pnictides and hole-doped cuprates.
It is argued that the opening of the normal state pseudogap in cuprates arises from a momentum-dependent breakdown of quasiparticle coherence that sets in at much higher doping levels but which is driven by the proximity to the Mott insulating state at half filling. Expand
Hall number, specific heat and superfluid density of overdoped high-Tc cuprates
Despite often being dismissively described as exhibiting conventional Fermi-liquid-like behaviour, heavily overdoped high-Tc cuprates sport several unexpected features. Thermodynamic propertiesExpand
Influence of pseudo-gap and interlayer coupling on isotope effect in bilayer cuprate superconductors
Abstract The present investigations deal with the study of the isotope effect in bilayer cuprate superconductors. We have considered the BCS-effective Hamiltonian that includes the intra andExpand
Origin of the Fermi arcs in cuprates: a dual role of quasiparticle and pair excitations.
Starting from the basic properties of the pairon wavefunction, the corresponding k-space spectral function is derived and explains the variation of the ARPES spectra as a function of temperature and angle up to T *, the onset temperature of pairon formation. Expand
Universal spectral signatures in pnictides and cuprates: the role of quasiparticle-pair coupling.
The equations of motion for the quasiparticle operators are derived showing that the DOS 'peak-dip-hump' is caused by the coupling between qu asiparticles and excited pair states, or 'super-quasiparticles', and the renormalized SC gap function becomes energy-dependent and non retarded. Expand


Infrared pseudogap in cuprate and pnictide high-temperature superconductors
We investigate infrared manifestations of the pseudogap in the prototypical cuprate and pnictide superconductors, YBa2Cu3Oy and BaFe2As2 (Ba122) systems. We find remarkable similarities between theExpand
Nonmonotonic pseudogap in high- T c cuprates
The mechanism of high-temperature superconductivity has not been resolved for so long because the normal state of cuprates, which exhibits enigmatic pseudogap phenomena, is not yet understood. WeExpand
The pseudogap: friend or foe of high T c ?
Although nineteen years have passed since the discovery of high temperature cuprate superconductivity 1, there is still no consensus on its physical origin. This is in large part because of a lack ofExpand

Competition between the pseudogap and superconductivity in the high-Tc copper oxides
It is concluded that the pseudogap competes with the superconductivity by depleting the spectral weight available for pairing, as demonstrated by a study of two spectral weights using angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy. Expand
