Speaker: Xuzhe Ying
Subject: Topological Superconductivity

I'll discuss 1-D chain with superconductivity and show the existence of different phases for p-wave superconductivity. I'll also show the existence of Majorana bound state as well as its wave function. Also one dimensional nanowire with spin-orbit will be discussed. With the presence of Zeeman field and s-wave superconductivity, this model serves as a more realistic one for topological superconductor.
