While the application of out-of-plane magnetic fields was, so far, believed to be detrimental for the formation of Majorana phases in artificially engineered hybrid superconducting-semiconducting junctions, several recent theoretical studies have found it indeed useful in establishing such topological phases 1-5. Majorana phases emerge as quantized plateaus in the magnetoconductance of the hybrid junctions based on two-dimensional electron gases (2DEG) under fully out-of-plane magnetic fieldsā¦Ā
