Summary The physics of single nonmagnetic impurity immersed in a two-band s-wave superconductor with relative phase delta not equal 0 between its two order parameters is studied and elucidated. It is shown that midgap bound states are always induced by nonmagnetic impurities when delta = pi (s(+/-)-wave superconductors). These bound states emerge as a consequence of the topological nature of the corresponding Bogoliubov-de Gennes equation.
