Paper Abstract

We discuss various mechanisms that can lead to interband sign reversal of the order parameter in a multi-band superconductor. In particular, we generalize Abrikosov-Gor'kov solution of the problem of weakly coupled superconductor with magnetic and nonmagnetic impurities on the case of arbitrary order parameter anisotropy, including extreme cases as d-pairing or interband sign reversal of the order parameter, and show that interband scattering by magnetic impurities can stabilize an interband sign-reversal state. We discuss a possibility of such state in YBa2Cu3O7 in the context of various experiments: Josephson tunneling, neutron scattering, isotope effect measurements.
