  author={Sergey Smirnov},
  journal={Physical Review B},
Quantum finite frequency noise is one of fundamental aspects in quantum measurements performed during quantum information processing where currently Majorana bound states offer an efficient way to implement fault-tolerant quantum computation via topological protection from decoherence or unitary errors. Thus a detailed exploration of Majorana finite frequency noise spectra, preferably in a nonequilibrium device, is a timely challenge of fundamental importance. Here we present results on finite… Expand
