- Topological superconductivity between one and two dimensions
- Ady Stern
- Lewiner, Seminar Room (412)
In this talk I will review the concept of topological superconductivity, of the associated Majorana fermions, and of their recent realization using nanowires in proximity to conventional superconductors. I will then analyze the way that two dimensional Josephson junctions may be employed to create one dimensional topological superconductors and describe the unique properties of the resulting system.
