In my current research I am studying the potential crossed Andreev reflection between edge states of a helical quantum Hall state formed by the graphene’s zeroth Landau level using superconductors, which can sustain large magetic fields. The helical state can be realized using substrates with large dielectric constant, large angle twisted bilayer graphene, or two layers of graphene separated by hexagonal boron-nitride. Novel and exciting Majorana zero modes are expected to emerge.
