|Title:||Quantum Oscillations, Fermi Surface Reconstruction and Charge Density Waves in Cuprate Superconductors|
|Speaker:||Timothy Ziman (ILL, France)|
Magnetic quantum oscillations in high magnetic fields on high-temperature superconductors YBa2Cu3O6+δ were shown some years ago  to include a prominent low-frequency peak with two smaller neighbouring peaks.
The separation and even the position of these three peaks is almost independent of doping.
This pattern has been explained previously by rather special, exquisitely detailed, Fermi-surface reconstruction coming from Charge Density Waves.
These Charge Density Waves have been observed by X-ray diffraction in both low, and recently, in high fields, using free electron Lasers and pulsed magnetic fields .
We propose  that the magnetic oscillations are of different origin, and their frequencies are related to the bilayer and inter-bilayer electron hopping rather than directly to the areas of tiny Fermi-surface pockets.
Such so-called "slow oscillations" explain more naturally many features of the observations and allow us to estimate the inter-layer transfer integrals and in-plane Fermi momentum.
