Leakage of the Majorana quasiparticles in Rashba nanowire deposited on superconducting--normal substrate.

Aksel Kobiałka, Andrzej Ptok

Recent experiments show the possibility of realization of the Majorana quasiparticles at the end of the low dimensional structures. In this type of systems, interplay between spin orbit coupling, superconductivity and magnetic field leads to the emergence of the Majorana bound states in the topologically non-trivial phase. Here, we study the nanowire located partially at the normal and superconducting base, using microscopic model of this structure and the Bogoliubov--de~Gennes technique. We discuss the possibility of the leakage of the Majorana bound state, located at the part above superconducting substrate to the part above normal material. We have shown that this is possible only for some specific potential applied to the normal part.
