Neutron scattering study of magnetic excitations in overdoped La$$_{2-x}$$Sr$$_{x}$$CuO$$_{4}$$

Neutron scattering experiments have been performed on the overdoped La$$_{2-x}$$Sr$$_{x}$$CuO$$_{4}$$ ($$0.25 leq x leq 0.30$$). Low energy magnetic excitations ($$omega leq 10$$ meV) show incommensurate peaks for the superconducting samples with a maximum at $$sim 6$$ meV in the energy spectrum. As doping increases, the maximum of the dynamic susceptibility decreases linearly with $$T_c$$ and, finally, the low energy excitations become unobservable at $$x=0.30$$ coincidentally with the disappearance of bulk superconductivity. Time-of-flight measurements revealed that magnetic excitations for $$x=0.25$$ are markedly suppressed in the intermediate energy range ($$20 leq omega leq 80$$ meV), which is apparently consistent with a microscopic phase separation into a superconducting region which retains the antiferromagnetic correlations and a Fermi liquid region which has no magnetic correlations.
