Topological Supercoductors and Majorana Fermions

Topological Supercoductors and Majorana Fermions
Majorana fermion based superconducting qubit

We are interested in properties of topological superconductors, a fascinating state of matter that could be harnessed to create a new type of quantum computer [E. Ginossar and E. Grosfeld, Nature Communications 5, 4772 (2014), Tunability of microwave transitions as a signature of coherent parity mixing effects in the Majorana-transmon qubit.]
