Time-dependent Ginzburg–Landau model for light-induced superconductivity in the cuprate LESCO Academic Article uri icon


  • © 2019, EDP Sciences, Springer-Verlag GmbH Germany, part of Springer Nature. Cavalleri and coworkers have discovered evidence of light-induced superconductivity and related phenomena in several different materials. Here, we suggest that some features may be naturally interpreted using a time-dependent Ginzburg–Landau model. In particular, we focus on the lifetime of the transient state in La 1.675 Eu 0.2 Sr 0.125 CuO 4 (LESCO 1∕8 ), which is remarkably long below about 25 K, but exhibits different behavior at higher temperature.
