We find that the energy density required to vaporize the superconducting state is 2.0±0.8 and 2.6±1.0  K/Cu for x=0.1 and 0.15, respectively. This is significantly greater than the condensation energy density, indicating that the quasiparticles share a large amount of energy with the boson glue bath on this time scale. Considering in detail both spin and lattice energy relaxation pathways which take place on the relevant time scale of ∼10-12  s, the experiments appear to favor phonon-mediated pair-breaking mechanisms over spin-mediated pair breaking.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/52"/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/page/termsofuse"/> <dc:creator>Mertelj, Tomaz</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/52"/> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>Publ. in: Physical review letters ; 101 (2008),22. - 227001</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2011-11-30T08:59:15Z</dcterms:available> <dc:contributor>Demsar, Jure</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Sugai, Shunji</dc:contributor> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/41"/> <dcterms:issued>2008</dcterms:issued> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/17183"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2011-11-30T08:59:15Z</dc:date> <dc:creator>Kusar, Primoz</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Mihailovic, Dragan</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/41"/> <dc:creator>Mihailovic, Dragan</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Demsar, Jure</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Kabanov, Viktor V.</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Sugai, Shunji</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Kusar, Primoz</dc:contributor> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dcterms:title>Controlled vaporization of the superconducting condensate in cuprate superconductors by femtosecond photoexcitation</dcterms:title> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Kabanov, Viktor V.</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Mertelj, Tomaz</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
