We cannot believe we overlooked these Majorana discoveries

  title={We cannot believe we overlooked these Majorana discoveries},
  author={Sergey M. Frolov and Vincent Mourik},
. In 2011-2012 we performed experiments on hybrid superconductor-semiconductor nanowire devices which yielded signatures of Majorana fermions based on zero-bias peaks in tunneling measurements. The research field that grew out of those findings and other contemporary works has advanced significantly, and a lot of new knowledge and insights were gained. However, key smoking gun evidence of Majorana is still lacking. In this paper, we report that while reviewing our old data recently, armed with…

Majorana-Weyl cones in ferroelectric superconductors

Topological superconductors are predicted to exhibit outstanding phenomena, including non-abelian anyon excitations, heat-carrying edge states, and topological nodes in the Bogoliubov spec-tra.



Quantized Majorana conductance

The observation of a quantized conductance plateau at 2e2/h in the zero-bias conductance measured in indium antimonide semiconductor nanowires covered with an aluminium superconducting shell strongly supports the existence of Majorana zero-modes in the system.

Signatures of Majorana Fermions in Hybrid Superconductor-Semiconductor Nanowire Devices

Electrical measurements on indium antimonide nanowires contacted with one normal (gold) and one superconducting (niobium titanium nitride) electrode support the hypothesis of Majorana fermions in Nanowires coupled to superconductors.

Teoria simmetrica dell’elettrone e del positrone

SuntoSi dimostra la possibilità di pervenire a una piena simmetrizzazione formale della teoria quantistica dell’elettrone e del positrone facendo uso di un nuovo processo di quantizzazione. Il
