Alicea News and Views on Majorana modes in superconducting wires

Jason Alicea, Professor of Theoretical Physics, comments on recent experimental work by the Marcus group. They have identified a key property of ‘Majorana modes’ in superconducting wires that can be used to engineer qubits that are immune to noise by default. In Alicea's News and Views article he describes the Majorana mode as a line [...]
