Quantum Computing with Majorana Fermions in Hybrid Semiconductor/Superconductor Systems

Recently we have launched Station Q Purdue - signifying our strong collaboration with Microsoft Research Station Q.  We are constructing a new deposition system that combines MBE growth of high spin-orbit coupling III-V semiconductors with superconducting metals to engineer hybrid materials capable of hosting Majorana fermions.  We actively collaborate with the experimental groups in Copenhagen, Delft, and Sydney in this effort. We anticipate that our new system will be operational in the summer of 2016.
