Sumanta Tewari comments on the status of Majorana fermions

In 2018 a group of researchers in the Netherlands reported the discovery of a Majorana fermion – an important candidate for comprising the qubits in topological quantum computing. Unfortunately the paper had to be retracted. In the news reports on this retraction, our very own Sumanta Tewari (who was not involved in the retracted study) was asked to comment. Read more about the study, its retraction, and Sumanta’s comments here.
