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

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 $${p}_{1}$$.
