Preprints are manuscripts made publicly available before they have been submitted for formal peer review and publication. They might contain new research findings or data. Preprints can be a draft or final version of an author's research but must not have been accepted for publication at the time of submission.

A single-particle spectral density is proposed for cuprates taking into account the bipolaron formation, realistic band structure, thermal fluctuations and disorder. Tunnelling and photoemission (PES) spectra are described, including the temperature independent gap observed both in the superconducting and normal states, the emission/injection asymmetry, the finite zero-bias conductance, the spectral shape in the gap region and its temperature and doping dependence, dip-hump incoherent asymmetric features at high voltage (tunnelling) and large binding energy (PES).
