Constraints on the pairing state of the cuprate superconductors

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The pairing state of the cuprate superconductors is a key issue in understanding experiments and in clarifying possible mechanisms. A wide range of experiments now show that the gap function is predominantly dx2-y2 in character. Here we discuss the relevant experiments, especially focusing on those which provide constraints on possible mixed pairing states, such as s+d and s+id.
