Tinkering with Majoranas
Anton Akhmerov (TU Delft)

The goal of making Majorana states in the lab requires
bringing together very different and sometimes incompatible physical
phenomena: superconductivity, magnetic field, and one-dimensional
systems. The reward is high—creating and controlling the first
non-Abelian anyons, exotic particles, but so is the challenge. I will
show how different physical phenomena impact the creation of
Majoranas. I will show how the coupling strength to the superconductor
impacts the goal of creating Majoranas and how the orbital effect of
magnetic field impacts the spin-orbit physics. Going further, I will
show how to detect these physical phenomena using the nonlocal
conductance as a bulk probe of induced superconductivity.
