ABSTRACT We explain the anomalous doping dependence of zone boundary $(\pi,0)$ and $(\pi,\pi)$ bond-stretching phonons in the high-temperature superconductor La$_{2-\delta}$Sr$_{\delta}$CuO$_4$ in the doping range $0<\delta<0.35$. Our calculations are based on a theory for the density response of doped Mott-Hubbard insulators. Comment: 2 pages, 3 figures, SCES conference, Karlsruhe 2004

    ABSTRACT: Results indicating the important role of the electron–phonon coupling in high-temperature superconductivity compounds are presented, with emphasis on its implications for angle-resolved photoemission and optical conductivity. The dimensionless phonon coupling constant λ is determined by comparing the experimental and theoretical results. Although undoped materials are in the strong-coupling (λ ~ 1) regime, hole doping decreases λ, bringing compounds to the intermediate-coupling regime at optimum hole concentrations.

    ABSTRACT: Evidence for strong electron-phonon coupling in high-Tc cuprates is reviewed, with emphasis on the electron and phonon spectral functions. Effects due to the interplay between the Coulomb and electron-phonon interactions are studied. For weakly doped cuprates, the phonon self-energy is strongly reduced due to correlation effects, while there is no corresponding strong reduction for the electron self-energy. Polaron formation is studied, focusing on effects of Coulomb interaction and antiferromagnetic correlations. It is argued that experimental indications of polaron formation in undoped cuprates are due to a strong electron-phonon interaction for these systems.

    ABSTRACT: High-temperature superconducting copper oxides display a variety of both long-range and local lattice anomalies which are related to the onset of the pseudogap phase and / or the onset of superconductivity. Here we show that these anomalies demonstrate polaron formation where specifically the local character of the polarons plays an important role. We predict that unconventional isotope effects will appear in both the long-wavelength and local lattice effects.
