The oscillation of Majorana modes with near zero energy plays a very important role for ascertaining Majorana fermions. The edge states, which also have almost-zero-energy in onedimensional Su-Schrieffer-Heeger chain (SSHc), have been extensively studied for their topologically protected properties when the on-sites have dissipations induced by independent environments. We here show that common environments shared by each pair of the nearest neighbour sites in the SSHc can result in dissipative… Expand

Decaying spectral oscillations in a Majorana wire with finite coherence length
Motivated by recent experiments, we investigate the excitation energy of a proximitized Rashba wire in the presence of a position dependent pairing. In particular, we focus on the spectroscopicExpand
Decays of Majorana or Andreev Oscillations Induced by Steplike Spin-Orbit Coupling.
It is revealed that a steplike distribution of spin-orbit coupling in realistic devices can induce the decaying Majorana oscillations, resulting from the coupling-induced energy repulsion between the quasiparticle spectra on the two sides of the step. Expand

Topological invariants, zero mode edge states and finite size effect for a generalized non-reciprocal Su-Schrieffer-Heeger model

Majorana fermions and a topological phase transition in semiconductor-superconductor heterostructures.
The measurement of the supercurrent through the junction allows one to discern topologically distinct phases and observe a topological phase transition by simply changing the in-plane magnetic field or the gate voltage, which will be a direct demonstration of the existence of Majorana particles.
