In the work just published in Communications Physics (link) we have presented the result of our collaboration with Politecnico di Milano, Brandenburg University of Technology and La Sapienza University in Rome.
Here we show a theoretical proposal, which investigates the consequences of the charge density fluctuations – we have discovered two years ago by Resonant Inelastic X-ray Scattering – on the electron and transport properties of cuprate high critical temperature superconductors. The finding is that these charge density fluctuations are likely the long-sought microscopic mechanism underlying the peculiarities of the metallic state of cuprates. This might represent a decisive step toward the understanding of this fascinating but still very mysterious class of materials.
