  • Potential scattering generates intra-gap impurity-state
  • Magnetic interactions lift the spin-degeneracy
  • Two spin-polarized states created at W1 and W2
  • On-site component of both impurity-states is four-fold symmetric,
  • pointing at gap nodes.
  • Potential scattering should generate intra-gap state: Impurity-state is four-fold symmetric
  • Oriented with gap nodes.
