The enigmatic normal state of high temperature superconductors

Superconductivity is a macroscopic quantum state characterized by the total absence of electrical resistance and the ability to fully expel an applied magnetic field. However, these fascinating properties show up only below some characteristic (critical) temperature which, for conventional superconductors, usually does not exceed a few degrees, or a few tens of degrees.

Influence of lattice vibrations on a quantum phase transition

In the vicinity of the absolute zero of temperature, all materials, except Helium, are solid. Analogous to this, the conduction electrons in certain metallic compounds can “freeze” at low temperature into a Charge- Density Wave phase: a stationary, ordered, spatial modulation of the electron density. If the temperature is raised, the charge density wave order is destroyed (it “melts”). Full text.
