Evidence for Majorana bound states in an iron-based superconductor

Image 03

By using scanning tunneling spectroscopy on the superconducting Dirac surface state of the iron-based superconductor FeTe0.55Se0.45 , we observed a sharp zero-bias peak inside a vortex core that does not split when moving away from the vortex center.

Topological superconductivity on the surface of iron-based superconductor

Image 03

This paper proves that the surface states of FeTe0.55Se0.45 are 2D topologically superconducting, and thus provides a simple and possibly high-Tc platform for realizing Majorana fermions.

Observation of Fermi-surface-dependent nodeless superconducting gaps

Image 03

This paper provided the first convincing experimental evidence of a new type of s-wave pairing symmetry for the newly discovered iron-based high temperature superconductors by observing the Fermi-surface-dependent nodeless superconducting gaps in an optimally doped pnictide using angle-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy (ARPES).
