Multiband superconductivity and the breaking of time reversal symmetry

19 May 2022, 14:00


Igor Herbut (Simon Fraser University)


I will discuss how spontaneous breaking of time reversal symmetry in multiband superconductors leads quite generally to the formation of small Fermi surfaces of Bogoliubov excitations, irrespective of whether inversion symmetry is absent or present in the superconducting state. In the latter case the inversion symmetry is susceptible to being dynamical broken at low temperatures by the residual interactions. A lattice model of this process will be discussed. Its final result is a reduced, but still finite Bogoliubov-Fermi surface.
