We identify the minimal circuit that can perform the initialization{braiding{measurement steps required to demonstrate non-Abelian statistics. We introduce the Random Access Majorana Memory, a scalable circuit that can perform a joint parity measurement on Majoranas belonging to a selection of topological qubits. Such multi-qubit measurements allow for the ecient… 
Holonomic implementation of CNOT gate on topological Majorana qubits
The CNOT gate is a two-qubit gate which is essential for universal quantum computation. A well-established approach to implement it within Majorana-based qubits relies on subsequent measurement of

The authors show that combining the topological features of Majorana-based qubits and protected dark states of drive and dissipation protocols gives rise to an exceptionally good performance.
Minimal circuit for a flux-controlled Majorana qubit in a quantum spin-Hall insulator
We construct a minimal circuit, based on the top-transmon design, to rotate a qubit formed out of four Majorana zero-modes at the edge of a two-dimensional topological insulator. Unlike braiding

We propose a topological qubit in which braiding and readout are mediated by the $4\ensuremath{\pi}$ Majorana-Josephson effect. The braidonium device consists of three Majorana nanowires that come
One-dimensional error-correcting code for Majorana qubits
Although Majorana platforms are promising avenues to realizing topological quantum computing, they are still susceptible to errors from thermal noise and other sources. We show that the error rate of
Entanglement generation of two quantum dots with Majorana fermions via optimal control
It is demonstrated that optimal control techniques can be effectively used to prepare entanglement between two QDs through manipulating their chemical potentials, and has a prominent advantage: the runtime is much shorter than in adiabatic passage, providing a shortcut to adiABaticEntanglement preparation.
Visibility of noisy quantum dot-based measurements of Majorana qubits
Measurement schemes of Majorana zero modes (MZMs) based on quantum dots (QDs) are of current interest as they provide a scalable platform for topological quantum computation. In a coupled qubit-QD


Majorana qubit rotations in microwave cavities.
It is shown that the electric field in a microwave cavity can induce Rabi oscillations between adjacent Majorana bound states that can be used to implement an additional single-qubit gate.
Non-Abelian operations on Majorana fermions via single-charge control.
We demonstrate that non-Abelian rotations within the degenerate ground-state manifold of a set of Majorana fermions can be realized by the addition or removal of single electrons, and propose an
The top-transmon: a hybrid superconducting qubit for parity-protected quantum computation
Qubits constructed from uncoupled Majorana fermions are protected from decoherence, but to perform a quantum computation this topological protection needs to be broken. Parity-protected quantum

Proposals to measure non-Abelian anyons in a superconductor by quantum interference of vortices suffer from the predominantly classical dynamics of the normal core of an Abrikosov vortex. We show how
