  Title Effect of light on the reflectance anisotropy and chain-oxygen related Raman signal in untwinned, underdoped crystals of YBa2Cu3O7-delta Type Journal Article
  Year 2006 Publication JOURNAL OF PHYSICS AND CHEMISTRY OF SOLIDS Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 67 Issue 1-3 Pages 340-343  
  Keywords  
  Abstract Recent studies of the optical anisotropy of a detwinned, underdoped YBa2Cu3O7-delta-crystal showed that illumination-induced change and recovery in the surface reflectance can be traced on a time scale of hours. This effect of light is also known from Raman bleaching and electrical transport and shares features of the oxygen reordering processes above room temperature. We report temperature-dependent studies of the optical anisotropy using reflectance anisotropy spectroscopy and present time-dependent data for the optical transitions at 2.2 and 4.4 eV. We compare our results to Raman bleaching and discuss them within the picture of superstructure patterns and oxygen-defect reordering in underdoped YBa2Cu3O7-delta. (c) 2005 Elsevier Ltd.

  Title Photoinduced chain-oxygen ordering in detwinned YBa2Cu3O6.7 single crystals studied by reflectance-anisotropy spectroscopy Type Journal Article
  Year 2004 Publication PHYSICAL REVIEW B Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 69 Issue 22 Pages 224508  
  Keywords  
  Abstract We present a reflectance-anisotropy spectroscopy (RAS) investigation of photoexcitation and annealing effects in oxygen deficient detwinned YBa2Cu3O6.7 single crystals. Well-resolved RAS spectral features are either bleached or enhanced on a time scale of hours upon laser illumination with polarization parallel to the Cu(1)-O(1) chains. These photoinduced effects recover with room temperature annealing in the dark. Based on previous ellipsometric studies and on cluster models for the oxygen Cu-O(1) chain-fragments we are able to assign the RAS peaks that depend on illumination to optical transitions involving copper atoms located either on short chain-fragments or in isolated Cu-O(4)(2) sites. This provides strong evidence that photoinduced chain-oxygen ordering is indeed at the origin of persistent photoconductivity and Raman vibrational mode bleaching in these materials.
