Article: Evolution of superconducting correlations within magneticfielddecoupled La2−xBaxCuO4 (x=0.095)
[Show abstract] [Hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: We explore the evolution of superconductivity in La2−xBaxCuO4 with x=0.095 in magnetic fields of up to 35 T applied perpendicular to the CuO2 planes. Previous work on this material has shown that perpendicular fields enhance both charge and spinstripe order within the planes. We present measurements of the resistivity parallel and perpendicular to the planes, as well as the Hall effect. Measurements of magnetic susceptibility for fields of up to 15 T applied both parallel and perpendicular to the planes provide complementary measures of the superconductivity. We show that fields sufficient to destroy pair tunneling between the planes do not disrupt the superconducting correlations within the planes. In fact, we observe an onset of largeamplitude but phasedisordered superconductivity within the planes at approximately 30 K that is remarkably insensitive to field. With further cooling, we observe a phasetransitionlike drop in the inplane resistivity to an apparent state of superconductivity despite the lack of phase coherence between the layers. These observations raise interesting questions concerning the identification of the upper critical field, where pairing is destroyed, in underdoped cuprates.Physical review.

ABSTRACT: The model for the cuprates based on the modified electronphonon pairing mechanism has been tested. For this purpose, the superconductors with high value of the critical temperature have been taken into consideration. In particular: ${\rm YBa_{2}Cu_{3}O_{7y}}$, ${\rm HgBa_{2}CuO_{4+y}}$, ${\rm HgBa_{2}Cu_{1x}Zn_{x}O_{4+y}}$, and ${\rm HgBa_{2}Ca_{2}Cu_{3}O_{8+y}}$. It has been shown that the dependence of the ratio $R_{1}\equiv 2\Delta_{tot}^{(0)}/k_{B}T_{C}$ on the doping ($p$) can be properly predicted in the framework of the presented theory; the symbol $\Delta_{tot}^{(0)}$ denotes the energy gap amplitude at the temperature of zero Kelvin, and $T_{C}$ is the critical temperature. The numerical results have been supplemented by the formula which describes the function $R_{1}(p)$.Acta Physica Polonica Series a 01/2014; · 0.53 Impact Factor  [Show abstract] [Hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: Using 63Cu NMR, we establish that the enhancement of spin order by a magnetic field H in YBa2Cu3O6.45 arises from a competition with superconductivity because the effect occurs for H perpendicular, but not parallel, to the CuO2 planes, and it persists up to field values comparable to Hc2. We also find that the spin freezing has a glassy nature and that the frozen state onsets at a temperature which is independent of the magnitude of H. These results, together with the presence of a competing chargeordering instability at nearby doping levels, are strikingly parallel to those previously obtained in La214. This suggests a universal interpretation of magnetic field effects in underdoped cuprates where the enhancement of spin order by the field may not be the primary phenomenon but rather a byproduct of the competition between superconductivity and charge order. We also observe that lowenergy spin fluctuations are manifested up to relatively high temperatures where they partially mask the signature of the pseudogap in 1/T1 data of planar Cu sites.Physical Review B 07/2013; 88(1). · 3.66 Impact Factor
