Ubiquitous interplay between charge ordering and High-Tc Superconductivity

Thursday, December 19, 2013

Combining spectroscopic mapping with the scanning tunneling microscope and resonant elastic x-ray scattering we have been able to demonstrate the ubiquitous interplay between charge ordering and superconductivity in high-Tc cuprates. Our results also show that strong electronic correlation play a key role in this charge order, which likely to be due to hole organization, as they demonstrate a distinct particle-hole asymmetry that can be detected in STM studies.
