"fermi-surface reconstruction by charge order in cuprate superconductors"


Since the discovery of quantum oscillations in 2007 [1], we know that the Fermi surface of the underdoped cuprate superconductor YBCO undergoes a reconstruction at low temperature. A signature of this reconstruction is the change of sign in the Hall [2] and Seebeck [3] coefficients, which become negative at low temperature. Observed in other hole-doped cuprates [3,4,5], this phenomenon is generic. By analogy with Eu-LSCO, where charge modulations are responsible for the reconstruction, a similar mechanism was inferred for YBCO [5]. Charge modulations in YBCO have since been observed directly by NMR [6] and X-ray diffraction [7,8,9]. Charge order has also been observed in other materials [10] – it represents a central new fact in the physics of cuprates.

We have used electrical, thermal and thermo-electric transport measurements in high magnetic fields to investigate the Fermi-surface reconstruction in YBCO and its impact on superconductivity. Based on our recent observation of a hole-like pocket in the Fermi surface of underdoped YBCO [11], I will argue that both charge order and the pseudogap play a role in the reconstruction. We have mapped out the upper critical field Hc2 as a function of doping across the phase diagram and find a dramatic drop in Hc2 below a critical doping p = 0.18 [12]. This shows that phase competition is what shapes the Tc dome in hole- doped cuprates.
