We derive the Gor'kov equation for the matrix Green's function in the superconducting layer, considering a microscopic model for its disordered interface with a two-sublattice magnetic insulator. We find that an antiferromagnetic insulator with effectively uncompensated interface induces a large, disorder-resistant spin-splitting in the adjacent superconductor. In addition, we find contributions to the self-energy stemming from the interfacial disorder. Within our model, these mimic impurity and spin-flip scattering, while another breaks the symmetries in particle-hole and spin spaces. The latter contribution, however, drops out in the quasi-classical approximation and thus, does not significantly affect the superconducting state.</dcterms:abstract> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Kamra, Akashdeep</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Belzig, Wolfgang</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/42746.3"/> <dc:contributor>Kamra, Akashdeep</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Rezaei, Ali</dc:creator> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2019-01-23T08:10:11Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Rezaei, Ali</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Belzig, Wolfgang</dc:creator> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/41"/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dcterms:issued>2018-06-27T09:10:10Z</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2019-01-23T08:10:11Z</dcterms:available> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/41"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
