Abstract :

Topological superconductors with Majorana fermion quasiparticles form a newly

discovered class of matter. The Majorana fermion can be seen as half an electron,

or more accurately, the electron wave function has split up into two separate parts.

I will explain the basic physics behind topological superconductors and why Majorana

fermions appear, briefly review the current experimental status, and report on a few of

our new findings, focusing on disorder robustness and detection of Majorana fermions.
