Despite twenty years of research, the phase diagram of high-transition-temperature superconductors remains enigmatic. A central issue is the origin of the differences in the physical properties of these copper oxides doped to opposite sides of the superconducting region. In the overdoped regime, the material behaves as a reasonably conventional metal, with a large Fermi surface. The underdoped regime, however, is highly anomalous and appears to have no coherent Fermi surface, but only… 
Quantum oscillations in an overdoped high-Tc superconductor
The nature of the metallic phase in the high-transition-temperature (high-Tc) copper oxide superconductors, and its evolution with carrier concentration, has been a long-standing mystery. A central
Quantum oscillations and the Fermi surface of high-temperature cuprate superconductors
Abstract Over 20 years since the discovery of high temperature superconductivity in cuprates (Bednorz and Muller, 1986 [1] ), the first convincing observation of quantum oscillations in underdoped
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.
Universal quantum oscillations in the underdoped cuprate superconductors
Every metal has an underlying Fermi surface that gives rise to quantum oscillations. So far, quantum oscillation measurements in the superconductor YBCO have been inconclusive owing to the structural
Coexistence of Fermi arcs and Fermi pockets in a high-Tc copper oxide superconductor
ARPES measurements of Bi2Sr2-xLaxCuO6+δ (La-Bi2201) reveal Fermi pockets, which exist in underdoped but not overdoped samples and show an unusual dependence on doping.
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.
Towards resolution of the Fermi surface in underdoped high-Tc superconductors.
We survey recent experimental results including quantum oscillations and complementary measurements probing the electronic structure of underdoped cuprates, and theoretical proposals to explain them.
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.
Theory of quantum oscillations in the vortex-liquid state of high-Tc superconductors.
This work model the resistive state as a vortex liquid with short-range d-wave pairing correlations, and shows that this state exhibits quantum oscillations, with a period determined by a Fermi surface reconstructed by a competing order parameter, in addition to a large suppression of the density of states that goes like √H at low fields.
Mottness in high-temperature copper-oxide superconductors
The standard theory of metals, Fermi liquid theory, hinges on the key assumption that although the electrons interact, the low-energy excitation spectrum stands in a one-to-one correspondence with


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 the
A coherent three-dimensional Fermi surface in a high-transition-temperature superconductor
The observation of polar angular magnetoresistance oscillations in the overdoped superconductor Tl2Ba2CuO6+δ in high magnetic fields firmly establishes the existence of a coherent three-dimensional Fermi surface, and reveals that at certain symmetry points, this surface is strictly two-dimensional.
A Phenomenological Theory of The Pseudogap State

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 of

Fermi surface and quasiparticle excitations of overdoped Tl2Ba2CuO6 + delta.
The high-T(c) superconductor Tl( 2)Ba(2)CuO(6 + delta) is studied by angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy and the quasiparticle evolution with momentum and binding energy exhibits a marked departure from the behavior observed in under and optimally doped cuprates.
