The Kavli ITS workshop on “Majorana Modes in Topological Superconductors” will be held at the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Sciences (Kavli ITS) at UCAS in Beijing from January 8-11, 2019. The workshop mainly focuses on the realization and application of elusive Majorana modes in topological superconductors.

Majorana particles, which are their own antiparticles, have been of considerable interest for quantum computing in solid state systems since the zero-bias peak of the conductance was observed in the semiconductor nanowires. Now there are multiple experimental hints to support the potential existence of the Majorana states possessing zero energy. Since Majorana states can form qubits for quantum computation, once the Majorana states are able to be fully controlled and manipulated, the number of the Majorana qubits can be scalable to accelerate the speed of the quantum computation.

The scope of this workshop is to discuss the recent topics in Majorana bound states and Chiral Majorana edge modes in class D, aiming at promoting new collaborations among participants and seeking practical implementations to use Majorana modes for quantum computation. Furthermore, in the workshop, there will be a discussion session focusing on Majorana physics in the vortices of the topological superconductors.
