  Title Light-induced oxygen-ordering dynamics in (Y,Pr)Ba2Cu3O6.7: A Raman spectroscopy and Monte Carlo study Type Journal Article
  Year 2004 Publication PHYSICAL REVIEW B Abbreviated Journal

  Abstract We investigated the time and temperature dependence of photobleaching effects in RBa2Cu3O7-delta single crystals (R=Y,Pr) by Raman spectroscopy and Monte Carlo simulations based on the asymmetric next-nearest-neighbor Ising model. In a temperature range between 40 and 300 K the bleaching slows down on cooling, displaying a pronounced change in dynamics around 160 K for R=Y. To model this behavior we extended the Ising model by introducing a single energy barrier which impedes oxygen movement in the plane unless the oxygen atoms are excited by light. We obtain a time- and temperature-dependent development of superstructures under illumination with the fastest change at intermediate model temperatures. The chain-fragment development in the simulation thus matches the experimental low-temperature dynamics of Raman photobleaching, providing further support for oxygen reordering in the chain plane being at the origin of Raman photobleaching and related effects.
