Abstract: A37.00001 : Unconventional spectral signature of Tc in a pure d-wave superconductor*
8:00 AM–8:36 AM
In this talk, I will present the missing piece of the puzzle revealed by high-precision photoemission spectroscopy [1, 2]. Focusing on overdoped Bi2212 above the pseudogap critical doping , we observe a pure d-wave gap that evolves smoothly across Tc free from the interference of competing orders. On the other hand, the “filling” rate of the gap is found to sharply peak at Tc and create the thermodynamic anomaly across the phase transition. I will discuss the implications of our results in the context of recent progress on overdoped cuprates.
