Superconductivity, pseudo-gap, and stripe correlations in high-T c cuprates

Abstract : Under-doped La-214 cuprates show a charge-and spin-modulation known as " stripes " [1]. These stripe modulations are (quasi)-static close to 1/8 hole doping where superconductivity is suppressed. The pseudo-gap phase of other cuprate compounds recently also revealed charge modulation, but interpreted rather as a charge density wave (CDW) [2, 3, 4], that possibly competes with superconductivity. In this context, to better understand the interplay between the stripe phase and the superconductivity, we use angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy to study the electronic band structure and gap in La-214 cuprates near 1/8 doping (La 2−x−y Nd y Sr x CuO 4 (x = 0.12; y = 0.0 & 0.4)) and compare with the previous results in the same system [5] and La 1.86 Ba 0.14 CuO 4 [6]. Our data shows a loss of spectral intensity towards the end of the Fermi arcs, that is possibly due to a strong renormalisation, as already pointed out elsewhere * Néel CNRS-25, av des Martyrs-38042 Grenoble cedex 9; tel: (+33)(0)4 76 88 12 84 [5], with a noisy but still measurable gap. On the nodal direction no gap is observed within our statistics, but a sizeable decrease in intensity with temperature. Moreover, we do not see any shadow band, but our Fermi surface can be well modelled with a single electron band calculation in the tight binding approximation, even very close to the 1/8 doping La 2−x−y Nd y Sr x CuO 4 with and without Nd substitution.
