Disappearance of antiferromagnetic spin excitations in overdoped La$$_{2-x}$$Sr$$_{x}$$CuO$$_{4}$$

Wakimoto, Shuichi ; Yamada, Kazuyoshi*; Tranquada, J. M.*; Frost, C. D.*; Birgeneau, R. J.*; Zhang, H.*

Magnetic excitations for energies up to $$sim100$$ meV are studied for over-doped La$$_{2-x}$$Sr$$_{x}$$CuO$$_{4}$$ with $$x=0.25$$ and $$0.30$$, using time-of-flight neutron spectroscopy. Comparison of spectra integrated over the width of an antiferromagnetic Brillouin zone demonstrates that the magnetic scattering at intermediate energies,$$20 leq omega leq 100$$ meV, progressively decreases with over-doping. This strongly suggests that the magnetism is not related to Fermi surface nesting, but rather is associated with a decreasing volume fraction of (probably fluctuating) antiferromagnetic bubbles.
