Controlling Majorana states in semiconductor-superconductor networks

This paper designs a 'trijunction' device to selectively couple different pairs of Majorana zero modes in a semiconductor-superconductor platform. Using simulations and optimization, they identify gate voltage configurations to maximize desired Majorana couplings while minimizing undesired ones. This enables braiding of Majorana states, a key operation for topological quantum computing.
