Disordered superconductors as a platform for odd-frequency pairing
Date/Time: 16:30 23-Aug-2021
I will discuss the possibility of the odd frequency pairing in disordered superconductors. I will show that in these materials the instability to the odd-frequency paired state develops in the vicinity of the conventional superconducting state. The pairing mechanism in this exotic state is owing to the combined effect of the superconducting fluctuations in the s-wave channel and those of the spin-density. We believe that disordered superconductors are the systems where this pairing might have already been observed. In particular, this may explain the existence of the pseudo-gap and the insulating behavior near the vicinity of the superconducting domain in the strongly disordered superconducting films. The work is done in collaboration with Dr. Vladimir Zyuzin.
