"Determining the Fluctuations Responsible for the Singular Fermi-Liquid and the Superconductivity in Cuprates", by Chandra Varma (UC Riverside)

Date: 
Friday, April 3, 2015 - 2:30pm
Series: 
Condensed Matter Physics Seminar

I will report on Laser based ARPES of unprecedented accuracy and stability (taken by the group of Xingjiang Zhou, IOP, Beijing), together with a method of analysis (done with the group of Han-Yong Choi, Asia Pacific Center for Theoretical Physics, Korea), to quantitatively extract the many-body effects due the coupling of fermions to the fluctuation spectra in both the full symmetry (normal) and the d-wave sub-group (pairing) symmetry of the lattice in a family of cuprates.
