Center Member Rui-Rui Du's Work on Quantum Spin Hall Effect and Majorana Fermions Gain International Attention(2013.9.10)

In July, experts from all over the world gathered in Majorana Center, Erice, Italy to report on progresses in the quest of Majorana fermions in solid state. The News & Views article by Alicea,  published in the September issue of Nature-Nano.
(http://www.nature.com/nnano/ journal/v8/n9/full/nnano.2013.178.html), has selectively highlighted the work based on nanowire-superconductor junction by Kouwenhoven group of Delft,  magnetic-impurity-SC  system by Yazdani group of Princeton, and the hybrid of quantum spin Hall edge in InAs/GaSb and superconductor by Rui-Rui Du group.  Presently, the quantum transport experiments in InAs/GaSb has already been taking place in Daniel Tsui Lab in Beijing University; an unique low temperature STM will add to the research in the near future.  

今年7月在意大利Erice马约拉纳中心召开的国际研讨会上, 各国专家探讨了固体中马约拉纳费米子研究的最新进展. 自然-纳米 9月号对此发表了'News&Views'专评, 重点评述了荷兰Delft 的Kouwenhoven组在纳米线-超导结, 普林斯顿的Yazdani组在磁杂质-超导体系,以及杜瑞瑞组在InAs/GaSb自旋量子霍尔边缘态-超导体系方面的成果 (http://www.nature.com/nnano/journal/v8/n9/full/nnano.2013.178.html). 目前, 北京大学崔琦实验室已经开展了InAs/GaSb体系中量子输运实验, 并即将探索这一领域的低温STM实验.
