dc.description.abstractWe study theoretically quantum melting transitions of stripe order in a metallic environment, and the associated reconstruction of the electronic Fermi surface. We show that such quantum phase transitions can be continuous in situations where the stripe melting occurs by proliferating pairs of dislocations in the stripe order parameter without proliferating single dislocations. We develop an intuitive picture of such phases as “stripe loop metals” where the fluctuating stripes form closed loops of arbitrary size at long distances. We obtain a controlled critical theory of a few different continuous quantum melting transitions of stripes in metals. At such a (deconfined) critical point, the fluctuations of the stripe order parameter are strongly coupled, yet tractable. They also decouple dynamically from the Fermi surface. We calculate many universal properties of these quantum critical points. In particular, we find that the full Fermi surface and the associated Landau quasiparticles remain sharply defined at the critical point. We discuss the phenomenon of Fermi surface reconstruction across this transition and the effect of quantum critical stripe fluctuations on the superconducting instability. We study possible relevance of our results to several phenomena in the cuprates.en_US
