What are majorana zero modes and why should you care?
Speaker: Sankar Das Sarma, University of Maryland
Abstract: I will describe the search for Majorana zero modes, which are predicted exotic bound states in certain types of superconductors. These Majorana modes enable fault-tolerant quantum computation because of their peculiar topological properties allowing non-Abelian braiding. I will discuss the underlying theory and the experimental progress toward Majorana laboratory realization.
