A tight-binding description of high-temperature superconductors Academic Article uri icon


  • A single tight-binding model, with transferable parameters, provides a good description of the electronic structures of all currently known high-temperature superconductors, in the sense that results in the local density approximation are satisfactorily reproduced. Using this model, one can study the effects of atomic substitutions, vacancies, and structural modifications.
