@article{Burset2017CurrentFI, title={Current fluctuations in unconventional superconductor junctions with impurity scattering}, author={Pablo Burset and Bo Lu and Shun Tamura and Yukio Tanaka}, journal={Physical Review B}, year={2017}, volume={95}, pages={224502} }

The order parameter of bulk two-dimensional superconductors is classified as nodal, if it vanishes for a direction in momentum space, or gapful if it does not. Each class can be topologically nontrivial if Andreev bound states are formed at the edges of the superconductor. Non-magnetic impurities in the superconductor affect the formation of Andreev bound states and can drastically change the tunneling spectra for small voltages. Here, we investigate the mean current and its fluctuations for…
