The 'pseudogap phase' in cuprates coexists and competes with the superconducting phase

from SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory

Using angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy, a research team at SLAC and Stanford University has shown that the nonsuperconducting "pseudogap phase" in cuprates coexists and competes with the superconducting phase over a wide range of temperatures and compositions — a most surprising result. The pseudogap is one of the biggest mysteries in high-temperature superconductivity. The complex electronic structure of cuprate superconductors has made it very difficult for scientists to determine their phase diagrams and exactly how they become superconducting, let alone how to modify them to make their critical superconducting transition temperatures above room temperature. But this experiment has yielded important new aspects of the phase diagram that had been hidden. This work has been published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. more
