Outline
  • CMR manganites (short overview)
  • High-Tc cuprates
    • Phonons (new results)

Common theme emerging:

Clustered states and dramatic effects as a result of small perturbations (complexity)

cmr manganites
CMR manganites:

CE-type

Spin, charge,

Rich phase diagram, several states

competing. Common feature of many

T*

Field is small, but effective spin is large!

Elastic effects (see also

Bishop, Egami,…) are important for

this to occur in both D=2 and 3

(Burgy et al, PRL 92, 097202 (04)).

A similar picture

will emerge in our

high Tc analysis.

Phenomenological SC vs. AF competition

Monte Carlo results for ``mean-field-like’’ model of mobile electrons coupled to classical AF (A.M. et al., PRL 88, 187001 (2002)) and SC order parameters (Alvarez et al., cond-mat/0401474). Two parameters: J and V.

V=1-J/2

quenched disorder leads to clusters and t as in manganites

Quenched disorder leads to clusters and T*, as in manganites.

conclusions
Conclusions
  • Experiments + theory have revealed nano-scale inhomogeneities in TMOs. Intrinsic PS or first-order transitions smeared by disorder maybe at work.
  • The mixed-phase states appear to cause the CMR. They may contribute to the unusual behavior of underdoped cuprates. ``Colossal’’ effects may extend beyond manganites.
  • Phononic degrees of freedom in cuprates seem to produce competing charge inhomogeneous states like stripes and tiles due to breathing and half-breathing modes. Buckling modes will be studied.
