Proximity Superconductivity in Nb/InAs nanowire Josephson Junctions

InAs nanowires can make highly transparent interfaces with metallic superconductors, and are a candidate system in which Majorana bound states (MBS) can form. In this talk I explore the physics of Nb/InAs nanowire Josephson junctions, detailing the experimental challenges of the search for MBS, and the rich and complex phenomena that occur due to the interplay of proximity superconductivity and the potential profile of the nanowire, such as Orbital Josephson interference and Andreev bound states.
