t-J model for a bilayer: Coexisting superconductivity and planar-flux phases

We study the bilayer generalization of the t-J model with both hopping and exchange coupling between the two layers. Within the enlarged mean-field parameter space, we find dimerized, s+id, flux ladder and planar flux phases. Of particular interest is the planar flux phase that persists farther away from half-filling, and coexists with, and even stabilizes, dx2y2-superconductivity. The orbital currents in the phase generate staggered moments that are rotated away from the c-axis.
