We report on the Fulde‐Ferrell‐Larkin‐Ovchinnikov (FFLO) state in two‐dimensional d‐wave superconductors with magnetic field parallel to the superconducting planes. This state occurs a thigh magnetic field near the Pauli‐Clogston limit and is a consequence of the competition between the pair condensation and Zeeman energy. We use the quasiclassical theory to self‐consistently compute the spatially nonuniform order parameter. Our self‐consistent calculations show that the FFLO state of a d‐wave order parameter breaks translational symmetry along preferred directions. The orientation of the nodes in real space is pinned by the nodes of the basis function in momentum space. Here, we present results for the Knight shift and discuss the implications for recent nuclear magnetic resonance measurements on CeCoIn5.
