Lobes of the d-xz, d-yz, d-xy orbitals are off-axis, avoiding electrons in the electron-rich oxygen p-orbitals on the axes.
Labeled by symmetry group
Solid line shows prediction for strontium ruthenate if its pairs were spin singlets.
Strontium ruthenate Cooper pairs are spin triplets.
Total antisymmetrization of electrons requires that for symmetric spin function, antisymmetric spatial function, thus p-wave or f-wave.
