Phase slip signatures in fully proximitized carbon nanotubes embedded in van der Waals stacks — •Christian Bäuml, Lorenz Bauriedl, Michaela Eichinger, Nicola Paradiso, and Christoph Strunk — University of Regensburg, Regensburg, Germany
Recently, Marganska et al. suggested that Majorana fermions (MFs) can occur in carbon nanotubes (CNTs) proximitized by superconductor (SC) in large fields perpendicular to the CNT axis .
In this work, we demonstrate the first building blocks of the proposed device. As a SC we chose a bilayer NbSe2 crystal, an Ising SC capable to sustain large in-plane magnetic fields. A 7 µm-wide bilayer flake is stamped on top of a 9 µm-long CNT, laterally contacted via Au edge-contacts [2,3]. NbSe2 and edge Au contacts turn out to be extremely transparent. Consequently, we observe a large supercurrent induced even in the 2 µm-long portion of CNT not directly proximitized by NbSe2, with a 2-terminal conductance exceeding 120 e2/h. Moreover, the conductance through the CNT shows sharp magnetic field-dependent dips, which we attribute to phase slippage events within the 1D superconducting system, a 1D analogue of what observed recently in 2D systems as NbSe2 .
