Abstract

It was theoretically predicted more than 20 years ago [A. G. Lebed and K. Yamaji, Phys. Rev. Lett. 80, 2697 (1998)], that a triplet quasi-two-dimensional (Q2D) superconductor could restore its superconducting state in parallel magnetic fields, which are higher than its upper critical magnetic field, H > Hc2(0). It is very likely that, recently, such phenomenon has been experimentally discovered in the Q2D superconductor UTe2 by Nicholas Butch, Sheng Ran, and their colleagues and has been confirmed by Japanese-French team. We review our previous theoretical results using such a general method that it describes the reentrant superconductivity in the abovementioned compound and will hopefully describes the similar phenomena, which can be discovered in other Q2D superconductors.
