CATEGORY:Theor./Math. Physics Seminar
TITLE:Topological superconductivity between one and two dimensions
Date: 2017-04-23
Time: 14:30:00
Location: 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.
