○ Title: Higher Spin Cooper Pairs


○ Abstract: Among various many-body interactions in solid-state matters, electron-electron Hubbard interaction is the most evidently existing, but simultaneously the most elusive form of interaction for superconductivity. This is because the repulsive nature of electron-electron interaction is inadequate to serve as the source of superconducting pairings. Simply saying, the repulsive interaction does not glue Cooper pairs. In this work, we show that the confluence of the strong spin-orbit coupling completely changes the picture. By exemplifying the spin-orbit-coupled Mott insulator GaTa4Se8 whose strong spin-orbit coupling drives j=3/2 multiband nature of molecular states. We identify the particular pairing channel even with the repulsive origin. Intriguingly, this particular channel is characterized by ‘spin-2 Cooper pair’, which would not be possible without the aid of spin-orbit coupling.  Furthermore, we show that its Bogoliubov quasiparticles and their surface states exhibit non-trivial topological properties. To verify our theory, we propose novel experimental signatures that can be measured by Josephson junction transport and scanning tunneling microscope.
