Abstract

We propose a superconducting instability where loop Josephson-currents form spontaneously

(TRS) without needing an unconventional pairing mechanism. Using Ginzburg-Landau theory we

is consistent with recent muon-spin relaxation experiments. We discuss the crystal symmetry re-

otherwise seemingly conventional, superconductors.
