TOPIC: Proposal for coherent coupling of Majorana zero modes and fluxonium qubits using the 4pi-Josephson effect
We propose to use an ancilla fluxonium qubit to interact with a Majorana qubit hosted by a topological 1D wire. The coupling is obtained using the Majorana qubit controlled 4pi Josephson effect to flux bias the fluxonium qubit. We demonstrate how this coupling can be used to sensitively identify the topological superconductivity, to measure the state of the Majorana qubit, to construct 2-qubit operations, and to implement quantum memories with the topological protection.
