Abstract

We study the critical temperature Tc of FSF trilayers (F is a ferromagnet, S is a singlet superconductor), where the triplet superconducting component is generated at noncollinear magnetizations of the F layers. An exact numerical method is employed to calculate Tc as a function of the trilayer parameters, in particular, mutual orientation of magnetizations. Analytically, we consider limiting cases. Our results determine the conditions necessary for the existence of recently investigated odd triplet superconductivity in SF multilayers.
