A two-technique cross measurement allows identifying impostor Majorana particles

Majorana anyons, theoretically predicted particles which are expected to show exotic properties with great potential for quantum computing applications, are both very elusive and difficult to distinguish from other quantum states. Researchers from ISTA, ICN2 and ICMM-CSIC combined two different measurement techniques to unmask an impostor Majorana particle, as described in a study published in ‘Nature’.
