Electron-phonon interaction in correlated cuprate superconductors

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Electron-phonon interaction in the strongly correlated superconducting cuprates is studied. Two types of the electron-phonon interactions, i.e. the diagonal and off-diagonal interactions which modify the formation energy of the Zhang-Rice singlet and its transfer integral, respectively, are introduced in the t-J model. The characteristic phonon-momentum and electron-momentum dependence which are resulted from the off-diagonal coupling can explain a variety of experiments. We show that the vertex correction for the electron-phonon interaction enhances the attractive potential for the d-wave pairing.
