Abstract:

In this project theoretical methods and numerical codes were developed to identify realistic systems and conditions in which non-Abelian fermionic states can be realized. The effects of electric fields and impurities on the topological phase diagram of semiconductor-superconductor nanowires were studied. Several novel material platforms for the realization of superconducting states supporting non-Abelian states were also considered, including heterostructures formed by graphene nanoribbons and transition metal dichalcogenide layers, and higher order topological superconductors.
