Crystal structure of HgBa2CuO4+δ

The pseudogap region of the phase diagram is an important unsolved puzzle in the field of hightransition-temperature (Tc) superconductivity, characterized by anomalous physical properties below a certain temperature, T*[1]. In contrast to the superconducting temperature Tc which exhibits a dome-like shape, the pseudogap phase is observed only at low doping in the underdoped region of the cuprates phase diagram. There are open questions about the number of distinct phases and the possible presence of a quantum-critical point underneath the superconducting dome. More...
