Spin-lattice relaxation in cuprate superconductors


Brinkmann, D (2004). Spin-lattice relaxation in cuprate superconductors. Applied Magnetic Resonance, 27(1-2):207-213.

Abstract

This presentation gives a personal review of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and nuclear quadrupole resonance (NQR) spin-lattice relaxation studies in cuprate superconductors mainly dealing with the YBa2Cu4O8 compound with many examples from the Zürich laboratory. The studies were performed in both the normal and the superconducting state with various NMR isotopes (e.g.,17O,63,65Cu,135,137Ba). The relatively broad signals were mostly obtained by a phase-alternating add-subtract spin-echo technique. We will discuss the general behavior of spin-lattice relaxation in the normal state and the calculation of the dynamic spin including an approach (on the basis of thet-J model) to calculate the relaxation for plane copper, oxygen, and yttrium. An application of the Luttingerliquid model to the relaxation of chain copper in YBa2Cu3O7 and YBa2Cu4O8 is also given. We then will deal with characteristic features of the YBa2Cu4O8 structure: the spin gap, an electronic crossover in the normal state, the single-spin fluid model, and the d-wave pairing
