MiS Preprint Repository

We have decided to discontinue the publication of preprints on our preprint server as of 1 March 2024. The publication culture within mathematics has changed so much due to the rise of repositories such as ArXiV ( that we are encouraging all institute members to make their preprints available there. An institute's repository in its previous form is, therefore, unnecessary. The preprints published to date will remain available here, but we will not add any new preprints here.

Modulation of Majorana induced current cross-correlations by quantum dots

Björn Zocher and Bernd Rosenow


We study charge transport through a topological superconductor with a pair of Majorana end states, coupled to leads via quantum dots with resonant levels. The non-locality of the Majorana bound states opens the possibility of crossed Andreev reflection with nonlocal shot noise, due to the injection of an electron into one end of the superconductor followed by the emission of a hole at the other end. In the space of energies of the two resonant quantum dot levels, we find a four peaked clover-like pattern for the strength of noise due to crossed Andreev reflection, distinct from the single ellipsoidal peak found in the absence of Majorana bound states.
