The scanning tunneling microscopy resolved modulations of the density of states in the pseudogap state were studied. It was proposed that these are a consequence of a novel density wave associated with the d-wave Cooper pairs. Evidence of real-space organization of electronic states at low energies in the pseudogap state was presented. It was shown that the scanning tunneling microscopy measurements can distinguish a pair density wave from more typical electronic modulations.
