# Strain manipulation of Majorana fermions in graphene armchair nanoribbons

Hai-Qing Lin, Zhen-Hua Wang, Eduardo V. Castro
Graphene nanoribbons with armchair edges are studied for externally enhanced but realistic parameter values: enhanced Rashba spin-orbit coupling due to proximity to a transition-metal dichalcogenide, such as ${\mathrm{WS}}_{2}$, and enhanced Zeeman field due to exchange coupling with a magnetic insu...
