2 Long Range Interactions Form Slow Structures in Cuprates Competing Energies: Kinetic energy Short range magnetic Long range Coulomb - Phase separation (Emery, Kivelson) - Stripe formation (Littlewood, Zaanen Emery, Kivelson, …) Experiment (Davis, Yazdani, …) J.C. Davis, Physics Today, September 2004

3 1. Vortex Glass: The Original Proposition

4 Vortex Glass with Long Range Interactions: the Gauge Glass No Screening: Glass Transition (Young 91)

5 Expt.: No Extended Defects - No Vortex Glass Yeh (1997) Lopez, Kwok (1997) Lobb (2001) Foglietti, Koch (1989)

6 Screening: Short Range Interactions: No Gauge Glass Young (95)

7 Vortex Glass Transition Arrested by Screening: Vortex Molasses Jc does not vanish as a power law: levels off around Langevin dynamics for vortices: 1. Interacting elastic lines 2. In random potential 3. Overdamped dynamics

8 Resistivity in Vortex Molasses Resistivity finite below “J sc ”: Vortex Molasses Resistivity can be fitted by a - power law; or the - Vogel-Fulcher law

13 What is the physics? Dislocations are dipoles of disclinations, with anisotropic logarithmic interaction. Theory averages anisotropy and applies pair unbinding picture ~ KTHNY melting. However: - The dipole-dipole interaction is strongly anisotropic: - parallel dipoles attract when aligned; - energy is minimized by wall formation; - energetics different from KTHNY. Dislocation structures formed by anisotropic interactions

15 Low Disorder Medium Disorder NbSe 2 Simulation Domain Configurations We accessed lowest dislocation densities

16 Dislocation Domain Structures in Crystals Pattern formation is typical Rudolph (2005)

17 Dislocation Simulations 1. Overdamped dynamics 2.  is the glide/climb component of the stress-related Peach-Kohler force 3. Dislocation interaction is in-plane dipole-dipole type 4. No disorder Novelty: 1. Dislocations move in 2D: B g - glide mobility, B c - climb mobility; 2. Dislocations rotate: through antisymmetric part of the displacement tensor 3. Advanced acceleration technique Glide Climb

18 Computational Details Kleinert formalism 1. Separate elastic and inelastic displacement 2. Isolate the antisymmetric component of displacement tensor 3. Rotate Burgers vector

19 Observation I: Separation of Time Scales Fast fluctuations: from near dislocations Slow fluctuations: large scale dynamics from far dislocations

20 Observation II: Stress Distribution Modeling

21 Stochastic Coarse Graining 1. Divide simulation space into boxes 2. Calculate mean (coarse grained) dislocation density for each box 3. Slow interactions (AX): Approximate stress from box A in box X by using coarse grained density. 4. Fast interactions (BX): Generate random stress t from distribution P(t) with average stress t ave. 5. Move dislocations by eq. of motion. 6. Repeat from million dislocations simulated in 128x128 boxes X A B

22 Stochastic Coarse Graining: No Climb, No Rotation, Shearing Full simulations: -1 million dislocations -(~20 million vortices) -Profound structure formation -Sensitive to boundary, history -Work/current hardening

23 Stochastic Coarse Graining: No Climb, No Rotation, Shearing Box counting: - Domains have fractal dimension -D= No single characteristic length scale Number of domains N(L) of size L with no dislocations

24 Stochastic Coarse Graining: Climb, No Rotation, No Shearing Climb promotes structure formation, even without shearing

25 Stochastic Coarse Graining: Climb, Rotation, No Shearing log(time) B c /B g =1.0 B c /B g = Domain structure formation without shear 2. Climb makes domain structures possible 3. Domain distribution: not fractal 4. Effective diffusion const goes to zero: Domain structure freezes: Dislocation Glass

26 Andrei group PRL 81, 2354 (1998) Expt.: Shearing Increases Ic

27 Rudolph et al Expt.: GaAs: Increasing Climb Induces Domain Structure Formation Climb

29 Transmission X-ray Microscopy 3m3m Stage 1: Sudden propagation of reversal domains. Stage 2:Expansion/contraction of domains, domain topology preserved. Stage 3:Annihilation of reversal domains.

30 Modeling Magnetic Films Classical spins, pointing out of the plane Spins correspond to total spin of individual domains: spin length is continuous variable Competing interactions: –Exchange interaction: nearest neighbor ferromagnetic –Dipolar interaction: long range antiferromagnetic (perpendicular media) Finite temperature Metropolis algorithm (length updated) Spivak-Kivelson: Hamiltonian same as 2DEG & Coulomb systems Tom Rosenbaum: Glassy phases in dipolar LiHoYF
