**What’s so special about 1D?**

canal John Scott Russell's Soliton Wave Re-created On Wednesday 12 July 1995, an international gathering of scientists witnessed a re-creation of the famous 1834 'first' sighting of a soliton or solitary wave on the Union Canal near Edinburgh. They were attending a conference on nonlinear waves in physics and biology at Heriot-Watt University, near the canal. The occasion was part of a ceremony to name a new aqueduct after John Scott Russell, the Scottish scientist who made the original observation. The aqueduct carries the Union Canal over the Edinburgh City Bypass. In 1834, John Scott Russell was observing a boat being drawn along 'rapidly' by a pair of horses. When the boat suddenly stopped Scott Russell noticed that the bow wave continued forward "at great velocity, assuming the form of a large solitary elevation, a well-defined heap of water which continued its course along the channel apparently without change of form or diminution of speed". Intrigued, the young scientist followed the wave on horseback as it rolled on at about eight or nine miles an hour, but after a chase of one or two miles he lost it. What’s so special about 1D?

**1D: Spin-Charge Separation**

spin excitation charge excitation point out topological, 1D special, point-like, and higher D different.

30
**1D: “Bosonization transformation”**

Expresses fermions as kinks in boson fields: spin soliton electron = + charge soliton Hamiltonian of interacting fermions becomes Hamiltonian of non-interacting bosons Spin Charge Separation Electron No Longer Exists! Non-Fermi Liquid (Luttinger Liquid)

31
**Advantages of a quasi-1D Superconductor**

non-Fermi liquid strongly correlated controlled calculations

32
**Kinetic Energy Driven Pairing?**

Proximity Effect superconductor metal Individually, free energies minimized Metal pairs (at a cost!) to minimize kinetic energy across the barrier

33
**Spin Charge Separation**

1D spin-charge separation Pair spins only Avoid Coulomb Repulsion!

34
**Spin Gap Proximity Effect**

Kinetic energy driven pairing in a quasi-1D superconductor Metallic charge stripe acquires spin gap through communication with gapped environment

35
**Spin Gap Proximity Effect**

Kinetic energy driven pairing in a quasi-1D superconductor kF = k’F Conserve momentum and energy Single particle tunneling is irrelevant kF k’F

36
**Spin Gap Proximity Effect**

Kinetic energy driven pairing in a quasi-1D superconductor kF = k’F Conserve momentum and energy Single particle tunneling is irrelevant But pairs of zero total momentum can tunnel at low energy pairs form to reduce kinetic energy Step 1: Pairing kF k’F

37
**1D is Special Spin Gap = CDW Gap = Superconducting Gap Which will win?**

CDW stronger for repulsive interactions (Kc<1) Don’t Make a High Temperature Insulator!

38
**Stripe Fluctuations Step 2: Phase Coherence Frustrated Favorable**

Discourage CDW Stripe fluctuations Encourage SC

39
**Inherent Competition think local stripe order**

superconductivity T Josephson coupling Pairing think local stripe order think “stripe phonon” stripe fluctuations Static Stripes Good pairing Bad phase coherence Fluctuating Stripes Bad pairing Good phase coherence

40
**Behavior of a Quasi-1D Superconductor**

41
**Behavior of a Quasi-1D Superconductor**

High Temperature Effective Dimension = 1 Spin charge separation on the Rivers of Charge Electron dissolves Non-Fermi Liquid (Luttinger Liquid) Intermediate Temperature Effective Dimension = 1 Rivers of charge acquire spin gap from local environment Pseudogap Non-Fermi Liquid (Luther-Emery Liquid) Low Temperature Effective Dimension = 3 1D system cannot order Dimensional Crossover Pair tunneling between rivers produces phase coherence Electron recombines

45
**Is mesoscale structure necessary for high Tc superconductivity?**

Mesoscale structure can enhance pairing (spin-gap) May be necessary to get pairing from repulsion Always bad for phase ordering

46
**Conclusions Strongly correlated Kinetic Energy driven order**

Formation of mesoscale structure Formation of pairs by proximity effect Phase coherence by pair tunneling between stripes Quasi-1D Superconductor (Controlled calculations) Non-Fermi liquid normal state Pseudogap state Strong pairing from repulsive interactions Inherent competition between stripes and superconductivity Dimensional crossover to superconducting state Strong correlation leads to all sorts of new physics. I focused on 3 that can occur. “Controlled” is anthropomorphic
