"Towards topological quantum computing with Majorana bound states"

Montag 27. Januar 2020, 16:00 Uhr

Physikalisches Kolloquium

Dr. Michael Wimmer (QuTech, TU Delft)

Mesoscopic superconducting devices host Andreev bound states – the superconducting generalization of a discrete quantum mechanical state. Engineering such device properly may result in a topological superconductor that hosts robust Andreev bound states, so-called Majorana bound states. These hold the promise of being the building block of a topological qubit that is intrinsically resilient to many types of errors.

In this talk I will review the progress in the field and discuss the new aspects
topology brings to mesoscopic superconducting physics. In particular, I will show
how a combination of numerical simulations and experimental results gave new
insights into device quality, and I will discuss whether Majorana bound states
have been observed unambiguously.
