Title: Establishing the consequences of intertwined order parameters in spatially modulated superconductors. Final Report

Abstract

This the Final Report for the grant DE-SC0012368. The purpose of this project was to establish the generality and full implications of phasesensitive coupling between charge and superconducting order parameters in materials exhibiting charge inhomogeneity. Specifically, our targeted goal was to first confirm experimentally a number of unique phenomena predicted by Berg et al for the cuprate material La 2-xBa xCuO 4 (LBCO), commonly believed to contain such coupling and then extend the work to include several other superconducting families. More generally, our expanded research program sought to identify material families with co-existing charge and superconducting orders, and to understand the nature of the coupling between the order parameters. In the long term, we hope these are the first steps in identifying symmetry-based unifying principles, which might provide the foundation for a universal phenomenological theory, appropriate to describe to multiple families containing unconventional superconductivity.
