Towards Quantum Computation with Majorana Fermions

Recent experiments have provided strong evidence for the existence of Majorana bound states in semiconductor-superconductor heterostructures. In this talk, I will discuss the possibility to implement, for the first time, topologically protected qubits. All operations needed for universal quantum computing could be implemented by standard conductance measurements and single-electron pumping processes. For large-scale fault-tolerant quantum computations, these topological qubits may be arranged to form a network effectively realizing Kitaev's toric code, i.e, a phase with intrinsic topological order. We outline how such networks can be operated as a Majorana surface code.
