Title Emergence of coherent magnetic excitations in the high temperature underdoped La2-xSrxCuO4 superconductor at low temperatures
Abstract We use inelastic neutron scattering to measure the magnetic excitations in underdoped La2-xSrxCuO4 (x=0.085, Tc=22 K) for large energy (5<E<200 meV) and temperature (5<T<300 K) ranges. At low T, the response is highly structured in E and q, with peaks in the local susceptibility at 15 and 50 meV and a four-peaked structure in q for E185 meV. Raising T from 30 KTc to 300 K causes the structure in (q,) present for E<70 meV to disappear. It is replaced with a strongly damped response. We attribute this change to the disappearance of the pseudogap with increasing temperature.
