Robustness of exchange protocols of Majorana fermions in quantum wire networks — •Rolf W. Reinthaler1, Chao Lei2, Allan H. MacDonald2, and Ewelina M.

The ends of one-dimensional spinless p-wave superconductors support Majorana bound states [1], whose non-trivial exchange statistics makes them promising candidates for topological quantum computation [2]. The huge advantage of using networks of 1D nano wires is that the Majorana fermions can be manipulated and exchanged by purely electrical means [3]. By applying a tight binding approach we solve the time dependent Bogoliubov-de Gennes equations for the Kitaev chain model [1]. We analyze how the robustness of the exchange protocols is affected by non-adiabatic effects as well as by a finite overlap of the Majorana bound states.
