Two topics in p-wave superconductivity

日期:2017-11-07 阅读:536


I will start with a very brief introduction to p-wave superconductivity, and then summarize some work aimed at constructing an effective low-energy theory that captures the nonabelian nature of the Majorana zero modes at vortex cores and edges. In the second part of the talk I will discuss recent work on the geometric response of chiral superconductors, and in particular the spontaneous generation of magnetic flux in region with non-zero Gaussian curvature - the geo-Meissner effect.


He is Member of Royal Academy of Sciences and he is Member of the Nobel Committee in Physics. He has held research positions at MIT and CERN, and he has been assistant professor at State University of New York in Stony Brook. His early work is in theoretical particle/nuclear physics. He wrote widely cited articles for example on the MIT Bag Model phenomenology and high temperature QCD with Robert Jaffe. Subsequently his interest turned to condensed matter physics, including early work on fractional statistics and in particular various aspects of quantum Hall effect. Among his remarkable articles is one on fractional quantum Hall effect that he co-authored with Zhang Shou-Cheng and that has over 1.000 citations. He is also a collaborator of Cristiane Morais Smith, who is one of the visiting professors at Wilczek Quantum Center.
