Angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) is used to study the spectral function of the optimally doped high-Tc superconductor (Bi,Pb)2Sr2CaCu2O8+δ in the vicinity of the antinodal point in the superconducting state. Using a parametrized self-energy function, it was possible to describe both the coherent and the incoherent spectral weight of the bonding and the antibonding band. The renormalization effects can be assigned to a very strong coupling to the magnetic resonance mode and at higher energies to a bandwidth renormalization by a factor of two, probably caused by a coupling to a continuum. The present reevaluation of the ARPES data allows one to come to a more reliable determination of the value of the coupling strength of the charge carriers to the mode. The experimental results for the dressing of the charge carriers are compared to theoretical models.

    Physics Next Workshops
    March 20, 2017

    The American Physical Society is initiating a new series of international workshops. These Physics Next workshops will be aimed at fostering new and emerging areas of physics research, focusing on topics that straddle traditional subject boundaries and are starting to “emerge from the noise.”

    The first workshop is titled “Physics Next: Materials Design and Discovery,” and will take place on May 15 -17, 2017. More information.
