Anomalous zero-bias conductance peak in a Nb-InSb nanowire-Nb hybrid device

Deng, M. T.; Yu, C. L.; Huang, G. Y.; Larsson, Marcus; Caroff, Philippe; Xu, H. Q.

Description

Semiconductor InSb nanowires are expected to provide an excellent material platform for the study of Majorana fermions in solid state systems. Here, we report on the realization of a Nb-InSb nanowire-Nb hybrid quantum device and the observation of a zero-bias conductance peak structure in the device. An InSb nanowire quantum dot is formed in the device between the two Nb contacts. Due to the proximity effect, the InSb nanowire segments covered by the superconductor Nb contacts turn to...[Show more]
