Abstract

Author(s): Yingyi Huang, Jay D. Sau, Tudor D. Stanescu, and S. Das Sarma We theoretically study a spin-orbit-coupled nanowire proximitized by a superconductor in the presence of an externally applied Zeeman field (“Majorana nanowire”) with zero-energy Majorana bound states localized at the two ends of the wire when the Zeeman spin splitting is large enough for the system...
