The realization of Majorana fermions in superconductor (SC)/topological insulator (TI) hybrid structures is a major international research challenge. Prerequisite is the understanding and optimization of SC/TI interface, which can in principle be achieved through the predictive power of density functional theory. However, treating superconductivity on this footing in complex systems, including defects, surfaces and interfaces, remains a major challenge. The Bogoliubov-de Gennes (BdG) method allows to combine the strengths of ab initio electronic structure calculations for the normal state with a simple description of the superconducting pairing interaction [1]. While taking care of the complexity of the normal state band structure, a material-specific semiphenomenological parameter can be introduced to allow the calculation of the BdG quasiparticle spectrum in the superconducting state. – Here, we present the implementation of the BdG method into our full-potential relativistic Korringa-Kohn-Rostoker Green function method [https://jukkr.fz-juelich.de], following Csire et al. [1]. We acknowledge financial support from DFG-Excellence Cluster ML4Q.
