“Fermi surface reconstruction by charge order in the pseudogap phase of underdoped copper oxides”

Over the last years, quantum oscillation measurements [1] have shown that the Fermi surface of underdoped cuprates suffer a drastic modification compare to the large hole-like cylinder observed in the overdoped side [2]. Many studies such as NMR measurements [3], x-ray scattering [4] point to a reconstruction of the Fermi surface due to charge density wave (CDW). Fermi-surface reconstruction and charge modulations are two universal signatures of underdoped cuprates, which begs the following questions: what is the impact of charge order on the electronic properties of underdoped cuprates ? Is the Fermi surface seen by quantum oscillations compatible with a reconstruction by CDW modulations?

After an introduction starting from the observation of quantum oscillations to the discovery of charge order in cuprates, I will present thermodynamic and transport measurements in underdoped cuprates performed in high magnetic fields demonstrating that a phase transition takes place at low temperature. Compelling evidence that the Fermi surface of YBa2Cu3Oy is reconstructed by the CDW order detected by x-ray diffraction comes from the recent discovery of an additional small hole-like pocket in quantum oscillations measurements [5]. The consistency between our quantum oscillation measurements and models of Fermi-surface reconstruction by the CDW order will be discussed.
