Hole-Doped Antiferromagnets: Relief of Frustration Through Stripe Formation John Tranquada International Workshop on Frustrated Magnetism September 13 - 17, 2004 Montauk, New York

2
Outline Early ideas about La 2 CuO 4 : quantum spin liquid Reality: La 2 CuO 4 is a good antiferromagnet Hole doping frustrates commensurate Néel order Formation of charge stripes reduces magnetic frustration (and lowers KE) Are stripe correlations relevant to superconducting cuprates?

3
Anderson’s RVB proposal for La 2 CuO 4 PW Anderson, Science 235, 1196 (1987) “The oxide superconductors, particularly those … base on La 2 CuO 4, … tend … to occur near a metal-insulator transition …. This insulating phase is proposed to be the long-sought ‘resonating-valence-bond’ state or ‘quantum spin liquid’ hypothesized in 1973. This insulating magnetic phase is favored by low spin, low dimensionality, and magnetic frustration.” PW Anderson, Mat. Res. Bull. 8, 153 (1973) “Resonating Valence Bonds: A New Kind of Insulator” Proposal for S=1/2 on a triangular lattice

4
Local RVB singlets Kivelson, Rokhsar, and Sethna, PRB 35, 8865 (1987) Existence of a spin gap leads to Bose condensation of doped holes Requires dynamic modulation of superexchange by phonons Reality: Cu-O bonds are stiff

5
Frustration by AF next-nearest-neighbor exchange Sachdev and Read, Int. J. Mod. Phys. B 5, 219 (1991) spin-Peierls order

Reality: An isolated CuO 2 plane would order at T = 0 S(q 2D ) ~ 1 / [(q 2D ) 2 + -2 ] = spin-spin correlation length -1 ~ exp(- J/T) J = 135 meV ~ 1500 K Theory: Chakravarty, Halperin,+Nelson, PRB 39, 2344 (1989) Hasenfratz+Niedermayer, PL B 268, 231 (1991) Expt: Birgeneau et al., JPCS 56, 1913 (1995) as T 0

Magnetic dilution Destruction of LRO requires 40% dilution! Experimental results for La 2 Cu 1-z (Zn,Mg) z O 4 Vajk et al., Science 295, 1691 (2002)

11
Competing Interactions Motion of hole lowers kinetic energy but costs superexchange energy

12

Charge and spin stripe order

15
Early stripe predictions Zaanen and Gunnarson Phys. Rev. B 40, 7391 (1989) Hubbard model Mean-field solution White and Scalapino, PRL 80, 1272 (1998) t-J model Density matrix renormalization group

16
Alternative: Frustrated Phase Separation Löw, Emery, Fabricius, and Kivelson, PRL 72, 1918 (1994) Competing interactions result in striped and checkerboard phases Analysis of t-J model by Emery and Kivelson: Holes tend to phase separate! t-J model lacks long-range part of Coulomb interaction Long-range Coulomb repulsion frustrates phase separation

23
Comparison of LBCO and YBCO Magnetic excitation spectra look the same! (E LBCO ~ 1.5 E YBCO ) Implies same mechanism at work in both Excitations in LBCO associated with stripes Suggests stripe correlations present in YBCO “Resonance peak” is just the most visible part of the spectrum Present even in non-superconducting LBCO

24
How can we understand the stripe excitation spectrum?

25
Comparison with ladder model 2-leg, AF spin ladder J = 100 meV two domains

26
Evidence for spin gap

27
Better theoretical models Weakly-coupled stripes Vojta and Ulbricht cond-mat/0402377 Uhrig, Schmidt, and Grüninger cond-mat/0402659 included 4-spin cyclic exchange Mean-field stripe order + fluctuations Seibold and Lorenzana cond-mat/0406589 dispersion is more 2D-like

28
Universal Spectrum + Spin gap LSCO(?) YBCO(?)

29
Conclusions Stripes form due to competing interactions (frustration) Magnetic excitation spectrum of a stripe-ordered cuprate is same as in good superconductors Suggests a universal spectrum Quantum spin gap of two-leg ladders may be important for hole pairing LBCO results: Nature 429, 534 (2004)
