R. G. Herb Condensed Matter Seminar
Spin spirals in underdoped cuprates: theory and experiment
Date: Thursday, September 30th
Time: 10:00 am
Place: 5310 Chamberlin
Speaker: Oleg P. Sushkov, University of New South Wales
Abstract: To shed light on generic physics of cuprate superconductors (doped Mott insulators) I discuss and relate the following issues:

1)Incommensurate spin ordering in LSCO and YBCO.
2)Difference and similarities between these compounds: disorder versus bilayer.
3)Quantum Critical and Lifshitz points in YBCO and LSCO.
4)Magnetic Quantum Oscillations in YBCO.
5)Recent MSR data.
Host: Andrey Chubukov
