Pseudogap in Boron-Doped Diamond and Cuprates

Original Paper

Abstract

The Marcus model, well known as a general model for electron transfer, is applied to electron pair formation and transfer in systems characterized by neighboring superconducting and local phases, particularly boron-doped diamond and cuprates. Hubbard-U is identified with the adiabatic free energy difference between charged and spin-coupled configurations. Typical for the Marcus model is the coupling of electronic and nuclear coordinates due to structural changes with number of electrons during electron transfer or excitation.
