A road to reality with topological superconductors (article in Nature Physics by Leiden PI Carlo Beenakker and Delft QuTech PI Leo Kouwenhoven)


Topological matter can host low-energy quasiparticles, which, in a superconductor, are Majorana fermions described by a real wavefunction. The absence of complex phases provides protection for quantum computations based on topological superconductivity.
