Unusual magnetic transition and its consequences

Alexei Abrikosov

Materials Science Division

A theory of the phase transition from an insulating antiferromagnet to a metal in layered cuprates is constructed on the basis of a spin-density wave model. The transition occurs to be of the second order at smaller dopings and of the first order at larger ones. The influence of impurity scattering is analyzed. A phenomenon of an infrared transparency threshold is predicted for the insulating phase. For the metallic phase the experimentally observed phenomena of anti-ferromagnetic ``bubbles'' around nonmagnetic impurities and ``week antiferromagnetism'' in the metallic and superconducting phases are explained.
