Kedves Erdeklodok,

Fizikus MSc es PhD hallgatok figyelmebe ajanljuk a lenti “Topological
insulators 2” cimu kurzust. A targy a BME-n es az ELTE-n egyarant felveheto.

Asboth Janos, Oroszlany Laszlo, Palyi Andras


Topological Insulators 2 (Topological superconductors)

Course for MSc and PhD students at
Eotvos University Budapest (ELTE), and
Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME)
2018 Spring semester

If you'd like to join the course officially, then please sign up in Neptun,
and contact us at palyi at mail dot bme dot hu. Please send us an email also
if you'd like to attend the course unofficially.

János Asbóth, Wigner Research Centre for Physics
László Oroszlány, Eötvös University
András Pályi, Budapest University of Technology and Economics

Location: to be announced
Time: to be announced (at BME, there is already a time assigned, Friday
14:15-15:45, but this will probably change)
First lecture: on the week Feb 19-23
Course language: English
Course website:

• Topological quantum memories
• Geometry and topology in adiabatic quantum dynamics
• Noise-resistant quantum computing with adiabatic quantum dynamics
• Mean-field theory of topological superconductors
• A toy model for topological superconductivity: the Kitaev wire
• Majorana zero modes in topological superconductors
• Braiding, fusion, and their applications in topological quantum
• Hybrid superconductor-semiconductor nanostructures as topological
• Experimental signatures of topological superconductivity

Quantum mechanics, basic condensed-matter physics (tight-binding models for
electronic bands). We will make reference to the material covered in the
lecture "Topological insulators". If you have not completed that course, then
we suggest that you read through Chapter 1 of its lecture notes
( before taking "Topological insulators 2".
