The sudden change of the velocity, so-called "kink," of the dispersing peak in angle resolved photoelectron spectroscopy is a well-known feature in the high temperature superconducting cuprates. Currently, the origin of the kink is being much debated, but a consensus has not emerged yet. Here, we present a study of the momentum evolution of the kink structure from the nodal region towards the anti-nodal region, for optimally doped Bi2212 sample. We show that the observed temperature dependence of the kink structure in both regions of the momentum space is consistent with a scenario in which phonons contribute strongly to the kink.
A recent angle resolved photoelectron spectroscopy (ARPES) study by Douglas et al. \cite {dessau-comment} on oxygen isotope exchanged Bi_2Sr_2CaCu_2O$_{8+\delta}$ superconductors reported an absence of isotope effect at optimal doping, questioning the previous work by us \cite {gweon-nature}. Here, we report a new result that sheds light on this puzzling discrepancy as well as the nature of the electron lattice interaction in the cuprates: the anomalous isotope effect at optimal doping \cite {gweon-nature}, re-confirmed here, vanishes on a mere 2 % overdoping of holes. This result implies a rapid change of the nature of the electron-lattice interaction near optimal doping. We also find that the data by Douglas et al. \cite {dessau-comment} are actually characteristic of significantly over-doped samples, not of optimally doped samples...

We discuss the nature of electron-lattice interaction in optimally doped Bi$_2$Sr$_2$CaCu$_2$O$_{8+\delta}$ samples, using isotope effect (IE) in angle resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) data. The IE in the ARPES line width and the IE in the ARPES dispersion are both quite large, implying a strong electron-lattice correlation. The strength of the electron-lattice interaction is ``intermediate,'' i.e. stronger than the Migdal-Eliashberg regime but weaker than the small polaron regime, requiring a more general picture of the ARPES ``kink'' than the commonly used Migdal-Eliashberg picture. The two IEs also imply a complex interaction, due to their strong momentum dependence and their differing sign behaviors. In sum, we propose an intermediate-strength coupling of electrons to localized lattice vibrations via charge density flu...
