The Electronic Structure of High Tc Copper Oxides

  • M. Schluter


A consistent picture of the electronic structure of copper oxide materials is developed in this review. The approach starts with a first principles Density Functional description of the materials properties. Then, in two successive mapping procedures simplified models and their parameters are extracted. These models focus on the description of the electron dynamics on a small energy scale appropriate for the study of magnetism and superconductivity. At each stage of the renormalization process, observables are calculated and found in agreement with experiments. The final models are of the one-band, either Heisenberg (insulator) or “t-t’-J” (metal) type. These findings have strong implications for the possible nature of high temperature superconductivity; they also need to be further tested against critical experiments.
