Quasiparticles and Non-Fermi-Liquid Behavior in High-Temperature Superconductors

A. J. Millis

(Department of Physics, Rutgers University)

Abstract:  A summary of experimental evidence concerning quasiparticle and transport scattering rates in high temperature superconductors will be presented.  It will be argued that the data show convincingly that some sort of exotic non-Fermi-liquid behavior takes place in the materials.  WARNING:  THIS TALK REPRESENTS ONE PERSON'S CONFUSION REGARDING THE PRESENT EXPERIMENTAL SITUATION AND DOES NOT CONTAIN ANY NEW THEORETICAL RESULTS.

Host: Dennis Drew
