APS March meeting – Leo’s talk

On Monday, the first day of the March Meeting, Leo presented our newest data in the direction of generating and detecting Majorana fermions in semiconductor nanowires. The reception was quite overwhelming: the room was packed and just hours after the talk optimistic reports appeared in the news.

We received a lot of feedback from colleagues here in Boston, including several important insights into the possible meaning of the data. I am eager to get back to Delft where Kun and Vincent are continuing with “sanity check” experiments.
