Current Research Issues for the Electron-Doped Cuprates

Patrick Fournier

(Center for Superconductivity Research, University of Maryland)

Abstract:  The interest of the research community in the electron-doped cuprates , Re2-xCexCuO4 (Re = Nd, Pr, Sm), was revived recently by the increasing evidences of an elaborate phase diagram for the hole-doped cuprates (unconventional pairing symmetry, pseudogap, anomalous normal state, metal-insulator transition, etc.). In this talk, we review the actual status of research on both the anomalous normal state and the nature of the superconducting state, in particular the symmetry of the order parameter.
