New TOPSQUAD publication

Local and nonlocal quantum transport due to Andreev bound states in finite Rashba nanowires with superconducting and normal sections

Good news from the Condensed Matter Theory & Quantum Computing group in Basel: a new paper by Richard Heß et al. has been recently published in the Physical Review B journal and has been selected as Editor’s suggestion. The authors results indicate that trivial Andreev Bound States can generate conductance measurements features that can mimic Majorana Bound States (MBS). The paper demonstrates that it is essential to perform measurements in systems with long superconducting sections and over a large region of parameter space if one wishes to gain confidence in a purported MBS signature.
