@article{Lothman2021DisorderrobustP, title={Disorder-robust p -wave pairing with odd-frequency dependence in normal metal–conventional superconductor junctions}, author={Tomas Lothman and Christopher Triola and Jorge Cayao and Annica M. Black‐Schaffer}, journal={Physical Review B}, year={2021} }

We investigate the induced superconducting pair correlations in junctions between a conventional spin-singlet $s$-wave superconductor and a disordered normal metal. Decomposing the pair amplitude based on its symmetries in the time domain, we demonstrate that the odd-time, or equivalently odd-frequency, spin-singlet $p$-wave correlations are both significant in size and entirely robust against random non-magnetic disorder. We find that these odd-frequency correlations can even be generated by…
