Phase-dependent heat transport in topological superconductors — •Alexander G. Bauer and Björn Sothmann — Theoretische Physik, Universität Duisburg-Essen and CENIDE, D-47048 Duisburg, Germany
Recently, phase-coherent heat transport in superconducting tunnel junctions
has received great interest. On the one hand, it allows for the realization
of caloritronic circuits . On the other hand, this can serve as a probe of
fundamental properties of quantum matter . Here, we investigate heat
transport in junctions made from topological superconductors. We demonstrate
that the thermal conductance can probe Majorana physics and enables us to
distinguish between helical and chiral superconducting pairing.
