IQIM Postdoctoral and Graduate Student Seminar
IQIM Seminar followed by lunch
Abstract: Iron-based superconducting vortex is emerging as a promising platform for Majorana quasiparticle. After four-year intensive studies, substantial achievements have been made on several compounds, including Fe(Te,Se), (Li,Fe)OHFeSe, CaKFe4As4 and LiFeAs. For example, the discovery of integer series of quantized bound states manifests nontrivial topology of vortex zero mode, promises a hope to the field of Majorana research. In this talk, I will depict the main profile of this emerging Majorana platform, on the aspects of materials, bound states, experimental configurations, and etc. Its advantages on physics study and the major controversies owing to the practical diversity will be discussed in short. The systematic investigations accomplished on this platform is promoting the entrance to a second-phase research for manipulating Majorana zero modes in iron-based superconducting vortices.
