In a recent experiment, signatures of Majorana fermion (MF) were found in the vortex core threading a heterostructure composed of n layers of topological insulator (TI) deposited on a bulk s-wave superconductor. Here we provide strong theoretical support to the experiment. First, we demonstrate that MF modes appear on both top and bottom layers of TI, and(More)
The response to a local strong nonmagnetic impurity in the pseudogap phase is examined in two distinctly different scenarios: phase fluctuation (PF) of pairing field and d-density-wave (DDW) order. In the PF scenario, the resonance state is generally double peaked near the Fermi level, and is abruptly broadened by vortex fluctuations slightly above the(More)
Based on the possible superconducting (SC) pairing symmetries recently proposed, the quasiparticle interference (QPI) patterns in electron- and hole-doped Sr₂IrO₄ are theoretically investigated. In the electron-doped case, the QPI spectra can be explained based on a model similar to the octet model of the cuprates while in the hole-doped case, both the(More)
The origin of superconductivity in the iron pnictides remains unclear. One suggestion is that superconductivity in these materials has a magnetic origin, which would imply a sign-reversal s(±) pairing symmetry. Another suggests it is the result of orbital fluctuations, which would imply a sign-equal s(++) pairing symmetry. There is no consensus yet which of(More)
