Recent progress on superconductors with time-reversal symmetry breaking

Ghosh, Sudeep Kumar, Smidman, M, Shang, T, Annett, James F, Hillier, Adrian D, Quintanilla, Jorge, Yuan, Huiqiu (2020) Recent progress on superconductors with time-reversal symmetry breaking. Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter, 33 . Article Number 33001. ISSN 0953-8984. E-ISSN 1361-648X. (doi:10.1088/1361-648X/abaa06) (KAR id:82489)


Superconductivity and magnetism are antagonistic states of matter. The presence of spontaneous magnetic fields inside the superconducting state is, therefore, an intriguing phenomenon prompting extensive experimental and theoretical research. In this review, we discuss recent experimental discoveries of unconventional superconductors which spontaneously break time-reversal symmetry and theoretical efforts in understanding their properties. We discuss the main experimental probes and give an extensive account of theoretical approaches to understand the order parameter symmetries and the corresponding pairing mechanisms including the importance of multiple bands.
