On the need for topological quantum computation in quantum computation:
Sankar Das Sarma, Quantum computing has a hype problem, MIT Technology Review (March 2022)
The qubit systems we have today are a tremendous scientific achievement, but they take us no closer to having a quantum computer that can solve a problem that anybody cares about. $[\cdots]$ What is missing is the breakthrough $[\cdots]$ bypassing quantum error correction by using far-more-stable qubits, in an approach called topological quantum computing.
On the prospect of detecting Majorana zero modes:
