Title: The vanishing superfluid density in cuprates — and why it matters

Abstract

Recently, we have released the results of a comprehensive study of a couple thousand single-crystal La 2-xSr xCuO 4 films, covering densely the entire overdoped side of the phase diagram. Here in this paper, we review the key experimental findings, place them in the context of other important well-established facts and observations, and discuss their implications for our understanding of high-temperature superconductivity in cuprates. We conclude that it involves some new physics that requires going beyond the standard Fermi Liquid description of the normal state and Bardeen-Cooper-Schrieffer description of the superconducting state.
