Special Issue "Symmetry and Topological Structure of the Order Parameter of Unconventional Superconductors"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2023 | Viewed by 1373
Unconventional superconductors were discovered about 40 years ago , but today, new results of the structure of SOPs (superconducting order parameters) of well-known unconventional superconductors are obtained, and new materials with unusual symmetry properties are discovered. In particular, the initial triplet structure of SOP of Sr2RuO4 was reconsidered, the magnetic-field-boosted superconducting transition in UTe2 was demonstrated, and both even and odd SOPs in CeRh2A2 have been identified. Since there is no theory of unconventional superconductivity, experimental investigations of symmetry of SOP and theoretical approaches, such as phenomenological, topological, and group theoretical, are of great importance in understanding the nature of unconventional superconductivity.
This volume collects experimental and theoretical works on the symmetry of SOPs of unconventional superconductors.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Symmetry is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
