A new, multi-node FLEET review, published in Matter, investigates the search for Majorana fermions in iron-based superconductors.

The elusive Majorana fermion, or "angel particle" proposed by Ettore Majorana in 1937, simultaneously behaves like a particle and an antiparticle—and surprisingly remains stable rather than being self-destructive.

Majorana fermions promise information and communications technology with zero resistance, addressing the rising energy consumption of modern electronics (already 8% of global electricity consumption), and promising a sustainable future for computing.
