Topological superconductors and Majorana particle

Topological superconductors and Majorana particle

A new review investigates the search of Majorana fermions in iron-based superconductors.

The elusive Majorana fermion, or ‘angel particle‘ simultaneously behaves like a particle and an antiparticle — and surprisingly remains stable rather than being self-destructive.

Majorana fermions promise information and communications technology with zero resistance, addressing the rising energy consumption of modern electronics (already 8% of global electricity consumption), promising a sustainable future for computing.

Majorana zero-energy modes in topological superconductors makes those exotic quantum materials the main candidate materials for realizing topological quantum computing.

The work has been published in Matter.
