Charge stripes in cuprate superconductors: The middle wayJ.M. Tranquada

Charge and spin stripe order is a type of electronic crystal observed in certain layered cuprates associated with high-temperature superconductivity. Quantum-disordered stripes could be relevant for understanding the superconductivity. Here I discuss recent experimental characterizations of the stripe-ordered state in La1.875Ba0.125CuO4, and compare them with properties of superconducting compositions.
