    Title: From Topological Materials to Protected Qubits

    Abstract:: The past decade has seen remarkable progress in our understanding of topological states of matter, which exibit robust universal properties determined by the topology of quantum ground states. Topological insulators and metals are found to be widespread in solids and the material search for topological superconductors is rapidly advancing. Topological superconductors are theoretically predicted to host emergent Majorana fermions, fractional quasiparticles that are their own antiparticles. It is expected that spatially separated Majorana fermions can store quantum information in a protected manner. I will outline the physics of topological quantum materials based on the Dirac equation and describe recent efforts in making topological superconductors, detecting Majorana fermions and engineering platforms for robust quantum computation.
