Summary The physics of single nonmagnetic impurity immersed in a two-band s-wave superconductor with relative phase δ≠0 between its two order parameters is studied and elucidated. It is shown that midgap bound states are always induced by nonmagnetic impurities when δ=π (s±-wave superconductors). These bound states emerge as a consequence of the topological nature of the corresponding Bogoliubov-de Gennes equation.
