We demonstrate that in diffusive superconductor/ferromagnet/superconductor (S/F/S) junctions a finite, anomalous Josephson current can flow even at zero phase difference between the S electrodes. The conditions for the observation of this effect are noncoplanar magnetization distribution and a broken magnetization inversion symmetry of the superconducting current. The latter symmetry is intrinsic for the widely used quasiclassical approximation and prevented previous works based on this approximation from obtaining the Josephson anomalous current. We show that this symmetry can be removed by introducing spin-dependent boundary conditions for the quasiclassical equations at the superconducting/ferromagnet interfaces in diffusive systems. Using this recipe, we consider generic multilayer magnetic systems and determine the ideal experimental conditions in order to maximize the anomalous current.

Dynamic Spin-Triplet Order Induced by Alternating Electric Fields in Superconductor-Ferromagnet-Superconductor Josephson Junctions Bobkova, I. V.; Bobkov, A. M.; Silaev, M. A. (American Physical Society (APS), 2021)Dynamic states offer extended possibilities to control the properties of quantum matter. Recent efforts are focused on studying the ordered states which appear exclusively under the time-dependent drives. Here, we demonstrate ...
Resistive State of Superconductor-Ferromagnet-Superconductor Josephson Junctions in the Presence of Moving Domain Walls Rabinovich, D. S.; Bobkova, I. V.; Bobkov, A. M.; Silaev, M. A. (American Physical Society, 2019)We describe resistive states of the system combining two types of orderings—a superconducting and a ferromagnetic one. It is shown that in the presence of magnetization dynamics such systems become inherently dissipative ...
Quasiclassical free energy of superconductors : Disorder-driven first-order phase transition in superconductor/ferromagnetic-insulator bilayers Virtanen, Pauli; Vargunin, Artjom; Silaev, Mikhail (American Physical Society, 2020)n the seminal work by G. Eilenberger, Z. Phys. 214, 195 (1968), a closed-form expression for the free energy of inhomogeneous spin-singlet superconductor in terms of quasiclassical propagators has been suggested. However, ...

Magnetic field-controlled 0−π transitions and their experimental signatures in superconductor-ferromagnet-superconductor junctions Vargunin, A.; Silaev, M. A. (American Institute of Physics, 2020)Superconductor-ferromagnet-superconductor Josephson junctions are known to exist in the 0 and π states with the transitions between them controlled by the temperature and ferromagnetic interlayer thickness. We demonstrate ...
