Title: Coincident onset of charge-density-wave order at a quantum critical point in underdoped YBa 2 Cu 3 O x

Abstract

The recently demonstrated x-ray scattering approach using a free electron laser with a high field pulsed magnet has opened new opportunities to explore the charge-density-wave (CDW) order in cuprate high temperature superconductors. Using this approach, in this paper we substantially degrade the superconductivity with magnetic fields up to 33 T to investigate the onset of CDW order in $${\mathrm{YBa}}_{2}{\mathrm{Cu}}_{3}{\mathrm{O}}_{x}$$ at low temperatures near a putative quantum critical point (QCP) at $${p}_{1}{\sim}0.08$$ holes per Cu. We find no CDW can be detected in a sample with a doping concentration smaller than $${p}_{1}$$. Finally, our results indicate that the onset of the CDW ground state lies inside the zero-field superconducting dome, and broken translational symmetry is associated with the putative QCP at $${p}_{1}$$.

FIG. 1 FIG. 1: CDW in YBa2Cu3O$x$, $x$ = 6.48 ($p$ = 0.09). (a) The upper panel shows the scattering intensity map in the $kl$-plane at $h$ = 0 taken at $T$ = $T$$c$ in the absence of any magnetic field. The white dashed box indicates the location for the quasi-2D CDW.more » The lower panel shows the averaged intensity from $l$ = 0.3 to 0.7 r.l.u. The red curve is a Gaussian fit to the peak profile with a linear background (grey line). The inset show the background subtracted averaged intensity. (b) Same as (a), but the data were taken in the superconducting state at $T$ = 10 K. The black line in the inset is a guide to the eye for zero intensity. (c) The upper panel shows the difference map in the $kl$-plane at $h$ = 0 obtained by subtracting the data taken at $H$ = 0 T from the $H$ = 30 T data. The measurement temperature is 10 K. The lower panels show the averaged intensity of difference maps from $l$ = 0.8 to 1.2 r.l.u. at representative magnetic fields, which are vertically shifted for visual clarity. The red curves are Gaussian fits to peak profiles.« less
