PQI2016 Liang Fu: Majorana Takes Charge

Liang Fu (MIT) talks about recent developments in the control of Majorana fermions using the charging energy in mesoscopic systems.

In his talk, he addresses the following questions: can one probe the topological properties of Majorana Fermions in the solid state, specifically their non-locality as two Majorana Fermions share a single state. Then, can one use those topological properties in the field of quantum computation.

He then proceeds to demonstrate the latest developments in the entangled ares of theoretical physics, quantum information, and quantum materials.
