Properties of high-Tc cuprates: some recent results and open questions

Thirteen years ago, late in 1986, several groups confirmed striking claims of the famous paper by Bednorz and Muller [see Z Phys. B, vol.64, p.189 (1986)] that announced the discovery of high-Tc superconductivity in cuprates. Some 60000 papers later, we are still struggling to understand the high-Tc oxide superconductivity. We present some of the most relevant recent experiments and discuss some open questions across rather complex electronic phase diagram; we also note an important role of un-intentional and intentional disorder in these layered, high-Tc oxides
