Stripes and superconductivity

  • concentration of charge within insulating background -- natural locus of SC
  • excursions of carriers off stripes as pairing mechanism - Castro-Neto, Kivelson
  • Role of stripe fluctuations -- less suppression of SC?
  • pair-density waves
  • are stripes the reason for small superfluid stiffness in the underdoped cuprates
  • weak superconductivity in LBCO, multiple transitions
