  • Searching for superconductors with Majorana corner modes
    May 23, 2022 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm (CDT) MIST M102
    Searching for superconductors with Majorana corner modes

    Speaker: Yi-Ting Hsu (Notre Dame)Host: Shenglong Xu

    The material search for topological superconductors is fueled by the prediction of Majorana zero modes (MZM), which are exotic boundary excitations that are candidates for topological qubits. Yet, materials hosting topological superconductivity with MZMs are still rare to date. In this talk, I will theoretically show that monolayer WTe2 and three-dimensional MoTe2 ...
