We study optical responses of Leggett modes in multiband superconductors in the linear response regime. The Leggett mode is a collective mode unique to multiband superconductors that arises from relative phase fluctuations of superconducting orders for different bands. We use the Ginzburg-Landau (GL) description to study the collective modes in multiband systems. We find that multiband superconductors generally allow a linear coupling between the Leggett mode and external electric fields due to the…

Higgs Mode in Superconductors
When the continuous symmetry of a physical system is spontaneously broken, two types of collective modes typically emerge: the amplitude and the phase modes of the order-parameter fluctuation. For
NEW METHOD IN THE THEORY OF SUPERCONDUCTIVITY
The method of canonical transformations is generalized to Fermi systems and forms the basis of a method for investigating the problem of superconductivity. Starting from Frohlich's Hanmiltonian, the
