MAJORANA STATES IN CONDENSED MATTER: TOWARDS TOPOLOGICAL QUANTUM COMPUTATION, 14-20 May 2017, Mallorca, Spain

2016-11-06T17:39:14+01:00Tags: , , , |

Conference website SCOPE This conference will bring together the key international players in the ongoing efforts towards a topologically protected platform for quantum computation based on Majorana states. Different sessions will focus on discussing the latest developments in the ongoing experimental search for Majorana states in condensed matter,  including semiconducting nanowires, quantum spin Hall edges with induced superconductivity or recent

Strongly Correlated Topological Insulators: SmB6 and Beyond

2015-03-18T00:01:00+01:00Tags: , , , |

June 2-5, 2015; University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, USA Detailed information at:    http://smb6-conference.physics.lsa.umich.edu The conference will cover the current research situation on the mixed valent rare earth compound SmB6, viewed as the current paradigm of a strongly correlated topological insulator. It will also be forward looking, linking up with other branches of the topological matter community and

Majoranas sin superconductividad topológica

La búsqueda de nuevos estados de la materia ha sido el trasfondo de muchas de las revoluciones tecnológicas a lo largo de la historia. Una de las instancias más recientes que prometen tener profundas consecuencias en el futuro es el descubrimiento de aislantes y superconductores topológicos, concretamente por las expectativas que abren en el campo

Partículas de Majorana en Materia Condensada

Ramón Aguado. Instituto de Ciencia de Materiales de Madrid (CSIC). En apenas tres años, tres gigantes de la física dieron cuerpo formal a las ideas, todavía algo inconexas, sobre las que descansa lo que hoy en día conocemos como física cuántica. Primero fueron Werner Heisenberg y Erwin Schrödinger con sus trabajos de 1925 sobre la

Partícula de Majorana observada en cadena de átomos magnéticos en un superconductor

Un equipo de la Universidad Princeton afirma haber observado una partícula de Majorana en una estructura artificial hecha con unas decenas de átomos de hierro depositados encima de un material superconductor (plomo).  El hallazgo ha sido publicado en la revista Science, y está disponible también en arXiV.  El primer autor del artículo, Dr Nadj-Perge,  presentó los
