Title: Relationship Between Hole Density and Charge-Ordering Wave Vector in Sr14-xCaxCu24O41

Abstract

The distribution of holes in Sr{sub 14-x}Ca{sub x}Cu{sub 24}O{sub 41} is revisited with semiempirical reanalysis of the x-ray absorption data and exact diagonalization cluster calculations. Another interpretation of the XAS data leads to much larger ladder hole densities than previously suggested. These new hole densities lead to a simple interpretation of the hole Wigner crystal recently reported with 1/3 and 1/5 wave vectors along the ladder. Our interpretation is consistent with paired holes in the rung of the ladders. Exact diagonalization results for a minimal model of the doped ladders suggest that the stabilization of spin structures consisting of 4 spins in a square plaquette as a result of resonance valence bond physics suppresses the hole crystal with a 1/4 wave vector.
