Majorana modes are zero-energy excitations of a topological superconductor that exhibit non-Abelian statistics1,2,3. Following proposals for their detection in a semiconductor nanowire coupled to an s-wave superconductor4,5, several tunnelling experiments reported characteristic Majorana signatures6,7,8,9,10,11. Reducing disorder has been a prime challenge for these experiments because disorder can mimic the zero-energy signatures of Majoranas12,13,
