Optical conductivity of the triplet superconductor Sr2RuO 4

Research output: Contribution to journalConference article


Now the spin triplet superconductivity in Sr2RuO4 is well established. As to the nodal structures seen in high quality samples, there are two alternative models at present: a. 2D f-wave model with Δ(k)∼(k̂x±ik̂y)cos(ck z) and b. the multigap model with Δ1(k) ∼(k̂x±ik̂y) and Δ2(k)∼(k̂x±ik̂y) cos(ckz/2). In this paper we calculate the optical conductivity for T≪Tc in the 2D f-wave model and show that it differs significantly from those in the multigap model.
