  • We study the interplay between Andreev (Majorana) bound states that form at the boundary of a (topological) superconductor and a train of microwave pulses. We find that the extra dynamical phase coming from the pulses can shift the phase of the Andreev reflection, resulting in the appearance of dynamical Andreev states. As an application we study the presence of the zero-bias peak in the differential conductance of a normal-topological superconductor junction—the simplest, yet somehow ambiguous… CONTINUE READING
