Subject: 'Robustness and tunneling Property of Majorana in hybrid semiconductor-superconductor structure

Semiconductor nanowire with spin-orbit coupling and superconductivity from proximity effect is usually used as a model for topological superconductor. I will first talk about the topological phase transition for free electrons as well as interacting electrons. Then I'll discuss Majorana related tunneling problem and show a signature of Majorana.
