Krakow Condensed Matter Seminar: "Quantitative understanding of transport properties in cuprate superconductors"
Środa, 3. Marzec 2021, 09:00

Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to inform you that the seminar called up to now „Środowiskowe Seminarium Fizyki Ciała Stałego” starting from this semester will be carried out in English (in order to make it accessible for those employees of our Institutions who do not speak Polish and make it accessible for an international community).
At the same time, the organizers (IF UJ, WFiIS AGH and ACMiN AGH) of Środowiskowe Seminarium Fizyki Ciała Stałego proposed to make the subject of our seminar a bit broader and dedicate it to condensed matter in general. Thus we introduce a new name of the seminar: Krakow Condensed Matter Seminar.

Consequently, we would like to invite you to the first Krakow Condensed Matter Seminar which will be held on Wednesday, March 3 at 9.00 am.

The lecture entitled "Quantitative understanding of transport properties in cuprate superconductors" will be presented by dr hab. inż. Wojciech Tabiś, prof. AGH (Faculty of Physics and Applied Computer Science, AGH). The talk will be given via UPeL. You can participate in the meeting via the link below:



The lamellar cuprates exhibit a complex phase diagram as a result of strong electronic correlations, with an insulating state at zero doping, a Fermi-liquid (FL) state at high doping, and superconductivity as well as pseudogap (PG) and ‘strange-metal’ (SM) phenomena at intermediate doping. Despite immense efforts, the cuprate Fermi surface (FS) has been unambiguously determined in only two distinct, low-temperature regions of the phase diagram: a large hole-like FS at high and, at moderate doping, a small electron-like pocket associated with charge-density-wave (CDW) driven FS reconstruction stabilized by high magnetic fields.1 During my presentation, I will present systematic resistivity, magnetotransport, and Hall coefficient measurements for a number of cuprate superconductors in a wide temperature and charge-carrier range. Our electronic transport results indicate a significant change of the carrier density upon crossing from the FL to PG regime.2,3,4 This change corresponds to the localization of one hole per primitive unit cell CuO2. Furthermore, the detailed observation of the evolution of the transport coefficients across the cuprate phase diagram indicate that the PG regime is associated to the decrease of the density of states at the FS, and formation of disconnected Fermi-arcs, but is not a consequence of a true reconstruction of the FS driven by a phase transition.5 The transport properties directly stem from the Fermi-arc evolution with doping and temperature, where arcs states remain essentially unchanged, and from a scattering rate that is dominated by the Umklapp process. Finally, I will present the arguments for a phase transition associated with the enhancement of the CDW order by high magnetic fields and low temperatures in the underdoped regime of the cuprate phase diagram.1,5
