Superconductor-semiconductor hybrid devices are at the heart of several proposed approaches to quantum information processing, but their basic properties remain to be understood. We embed a two-dimensional Al-InAs hybrid system in a resonant microwave circuit, probing the breakdown of superconductivity due to an applied magnetic field. We find a strong fingerprint from the twocomponent nature of the hybrid system, and quantitatively compare with a theory that includes the contribution of…

Quantized conductance doubling and hard gap in a two-dimensional semiconductor–superconductor heterostructure
The hard-gap semiconductor–superconductor system demonstrated here is amenable to top-down processing and provides a new avenue towards low-dissipation electronics and topological quantum systems.
Spin splitting in narrow InAs quantum wells with In0.75Ga0.25As barrier layers
Using two independent magnetotransport experiments, i.e., thermal activation and the coincidence method in tilted fields, we determine the g factor in a two-dimensional electron system in a 4-nm-wide
Strongly disordered TiN and NbTiN s-wave superconductors probed by microwave electrodynamics.
A gradual evolution of the electromagnetic response with disorder is found, deviating from BCS theory, for both materials, which can be understood as due to changes in the quasiparticle density of states, induced by the short elastic scattering length.
Effects of Gate-Induced Electric Fields on Semiconductor Majorana Nanowires
We study the effect of gate-induced electric fields on the properties of semiconductor-superconductor hybrid nanowires which represent a promising platform for realizing topological superconductivity
Theory of a two-dimensional superconductor with broken inversion symmetry
A detailed theory of a phase diagram of a 2D surface superconductor in a parallel magnetic field is presented. A spin-orbital interaction of the Rashba type is known to produce at a high magnetic
Field tuning the g factor in InAs nanowire double quantum dots.
Electric and magnetic field tuning can be used to maximize the g-factor difference and in some cases altogether quench the electric-dipole spin resonance response, allowing selective single spin control.
Zeeman-induced gapless superconductivity with a partial Fermi surface
We show that an in-plane magnetic field can drive two-dimensional spin-orbit-coupled systems under superconducting proximity effect into a gapless phase where parts of the normal state Fermi surface
Superconductivity in a Strong Spin-Exchange Field
A strong exchange field, such as produced by ferromagnetically aligned impurities in a metal, will tend to polarize the conduction electron spins. If the metal is a superconductor, this will happen
Determination of hole g-factor in InAs/InGaAs/InAlAs quantum wells by magneto-photoluminescence studies
A circularly polarized magneto-photoluminescence (magneto-PL) technique has been applied to investigate the Zeeman effect in InAs/InGaAs/InAlAs quantum wells (QWs) in the Faraday geometry. Structures
Bogoliubov Fermi Surfaces in Superconductors with Broken Time-Reversal Symmetry.
It is shown that, for an even-parity nodal superconducting state which spontaneously breaks time-reversal symmetry, the low-energy excitation spectrum generally does not belong to any of these categories and has extended Bogoliubov Fermi surfaces, which are topologically protected from being gapped by a Z_{2} invariant.
