# Topological superconducting domain walls in magnetic Weyl semimetals

@inproceedings{Huang2021TopologicalSD, title={Topological superconducting domain walls in magnetic Weyl semimetals}, author={Zhao Huang and Christopher A. Lane and Dmitry A. Yarotski and A. Joanna Taylor and Jian-Xin Zhu}, year={2021} }

Recent experimental breakthrough in magnetic Weyl semimetals have inspired exploration on the novel effects of various magnetic structures in these materials. Here we focus on a domain wall structure which connects two uniform domains with different magnetization directions. We study the topological superconducting state in presence of an s-wave superconducting pairing potential. By tuning the chemical potential, we can reach a topological state, where a chiral Majorana mode or zero-energy…
