Abstract

The recent discovery of signatures consistent with Majorana fermions in topological superconductors may open the door to their future use in qubit devices. In this talk I will describe theoretical advances in the field of hybrid superconducting circuits that combine semiconductors and superconductors to form new types of topologically protected qubits. Given the time I will also survey experimental progress in these directions.
