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

    • "In one of the first theoretical papers considering lattice vibrations in cuprates the phonon softening was found by exact diagonalization technique in the model where effective Hamiltonian was obtained from the three-band model [162]. Softening of the breathing q = (π, π) and halfbreathing q = (π, 0) phonons was calculated in [83] [84] [87] [92]. The calculation predicted dependence of the softening on the doping concentration which was later confirmed experimentally [95]. "

    ABSTRACT: A review of experimental and theoretical results on the spectroscopy of high-temperature superconductors is presented. The models where hole doped into antiferromagnet interacts both with magnetic subsystem and with phonons are considered. Theoretical results of these models for phonon spectra, angle resolved photoemission spectra, and optical conductivity are presented. Comparison with experimental data gives evidence for the strong electron-phonon coupling in the undoped and weakly doped high-temperature superconductors. The strength of electron-phonon coupling decreases with doping though at the optimal doping the compounds are still in the intermediate coupling regime.

    ABSTRACT: We examine the single-particle excitation spectrum in the one-dimensional Hubbard-Holstein model at half-filling by performing the dynamical density matrix renormalization group (DDMRG) calculation. The DDMRG results are interpreted as superposition of spectra for a spinless carrier dressed with phonons. The superposition is a consequence of robustness of the spin-charge separation against electron-phonon coupling. The separation is in contrast to the coupling between phonon and spin degrees of freedom in two-dimensional systems. We discuss implication of the results of the recent angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy measurements on SrCuO${}_{2}$. Comment: 5 pages, 4 figures. submitted to the Physical Review Letters

    ABSTRACT: Momentum and doping dependence of the static charge susceptibility \chi(q) in the t-t'-J model is investigated. Correlations lead to a strongly momentum dependent renormalization of \chi(q). The charge susceptibility near (\pi,\pi) region of the Brillouin zone is strongly suppressed as the hole density \delta is decreased. However, contrary to naive expectations, \chi(q) around q = (\pi,0) and (0,\pi) remains large and practically unchanged at \delta \sim 0.1-0.5. This effect is consistent with a tendency towards low-energy charge fluctuations with the wave vectors along the \Gamma-X direction, reported in earlier studies. Our main finding is that the above trends are amplified by J-driven pairing effects, indicating that the pseudogap formation may promote the charge inhomogeneity. The next-nearest hopping t' leads to weakening of the above momentum-selective renormalizations of \chi(q). We analyze the effects of long-range Coulomb interaction, taking into account a layered structure of cuprates. As an application, the results are discussed in the context of bond-stretching phonon softening in hole-doped cuprates. In particular, a peculiar doping and momentum dependence of the electron-phonon coupling constant is found.
