Séminaire du LPTMS: Leonardo Mazza

Majorana zero modes in one-dimensional Ytterbium quantum gases

Leonardo Mazza (Département de Physique, ENS, Paris)

After their introduction in the context of the relativistic Dirac equation, Majorana fermions have recently experienced a renewed interest for their relevance in the description of topological superconducting models, where they appear as Majorana zero modes. In this talk I will investigate the possibility of realizing Majorana zero modes in cold-atom experiments, and in particular I will argue that one-dimensional Ytterbium gases offer a natural experimental playground for their experimental implementation.
