We review recent spectroscopic mapping measurements on Bi 2Sr 2CaCu 2O 8+x that establish experimental signatures of incipient stripe order. Model calculations show how to disentangle the effects of band structure and incipient order and allow us to model details of the energy-dependence of the observed modulations associated with incipient stripe order. Comprehensive doping and temperature studies reveal the correlation between the onset of the pseudogap and incipient stripe order in Bi 2Sr 2CaCu 2O 8+ x, yet they also show that stripes are most likely the consequence of the pseudogap rather than its cause.
