abstract

  • We demonstrate that the spin dynamics in underdoped Y(1-z)Ca(z)Ba(2)Cu(3)O(y) for y approximately equal to 6.0 exhibit qualitatively the same behavior to underdoped La(2-x)Sr(x)CuO(4) for an equal amount of hole concentration p = z/2 = x< or =0.11. However, a spin gap appears as more holes are doped into the CuO(2) plane by increasing the oxygen concentration to y approximately equal to 6.5 for a fixed value of Ca concentration z. Our results also suggest that Ca doping causes disorder effects that enhance the low frequency spin fluctuations.
