Title: SPIN-ORBIT SCATTERING IN dx2-y2 SUPERCONDUCTORS

The authors show that spin-orbit scattering off an isolated magnetic impurity in a singlet d{sub x{sup 2}-y{sup 2}} superconductor generates a d{sub xy} order parameter with locally broken time-reversal symmetry. A consequence of the induced d{sub xy} component are orbital charge currents and a magnetic field in the vicinity of the magnetic impurity.
