The Fulde-Ferrell-Larkin-Ovchinnikov states for the d-wave superconductor in the two-dimensional orthorhombic lattice
The Fulde-Ferrell-Larkin-Ovchinnikov (FFLO) state of a two-dimensional (2D) orthorhombic lattice superconductor is studied based on the Bogoliubov-de-Gennes equations. It is illustrated that the 2D FFLO state is suppressed and only one-dimensional (1D) stripe state is stable. The stripe changes its orientation with the increasing Zeeman field. There exists a crossover region where the gap structure has some local 2D features. These results are significantly different from those of the tetragonal lattice system. The local density of states is also studied which can be checked and compared with experiments in future.
