Figure 13: Theoretical description of the optical excitation. (a) Symmetry of charge excitation for 1.2 eV light polarized along the direction of the charge stripes ( , see Figure 13(b)). (b) The charge distribution inferred by the stripes model in LCO. (c) Symmetry of charge excitation for 1.2 eV light polarized perpendicular to the direction of the charge stripes ( , see Figure 13(b)). (d) Theoretically derived optical conductivity spectrum in LCO.
