Shoucheng Zhang | Search and Discovery of the Majorana Fermion | 2 of 2

Monday, February 6, 2017

The Majorana fermion is a hypothetical fermionic particle which is its own anti-particle.  Intense research efforts focus on its experimental observation as a fundamental particlein high energy physics and as a quasi-particle in condensed matter systems.  Professor Zhang discusses the theoretical prediction and the experimental discovery of the chiral Majorana fermion in a topological state of quantum matter.
