We show that edge-state transport in semiconductor-based quantum spin Hall systems is unexpectedly robust to magnetic fields. The origin for this robustness lies in an intrinsic suppression of the edge-state g-factor and the fact that the edge-state Dirac point is typically hidden in the valence band. A detailed k·p band-structure analysis...

Parity control of superconducting islands hosting Majorana zero modes (MZMs) is required to operate topological qubits made from proximitized semiconductor nanowires. We test this control by studying parity effects in hybrid InAs-Al single-Cooper-pair transistors (SCPTs) to evaluate the feasibility of this material system. In particular, we...

Motivated by the recent advances in studying Majorana states in nanowires under conditions of the superconducting proximity effect, we address the correspondence between the common topological transition in an infinite system and a topological transition of another type that manifests itself in the positions of the poles of the scattering...
