Abstract: High-temperature superconductors are some of nature’s most enigmatic materials. Besides carrying a supercurrent, these materials manifest a range of electronic and structural orders. A state of modulated superconductivity, called a pair-density wave (PDW), has been suggested to occur in copper-based (cuprate) high-temperature superconductors, with the possibility of explaining these various orders, and perhaps even superconductivity itself. This thesis is based upon four appended papers and... more
