Broadened Yu-Shiba-Rusinov states in dirty superconducting films
Date/Time: 16:30 28-Jun-2022
The interplay of a potential and magnetic disorder in superconductors remains an active field of research for decades.Within the framework of the Usadel equation [1], we study the local density of states near a solitary classical magnetic impurity in a dirty superconducting film [2]. We find that a potential disorder results in broadening of the delta-function peak in the local density of states at the Yu-Shiba-Rusinov (YSR) energy [3-5]. This broadening is proportional to the square root of a normal-state spreading resistance of the film. We demonstrate that modification of multiple scattering on the magnetic impurity due to intermediate scattering on surrounding potential disorder affects crucially a profile of the local density of states in the vicinity of the YSR energy.
