Nanowire-based Majorana Devices

In this thesis I present my work on fabricating nanowire-based Majorana devices. In particular focus has been on a device in which energy splitting of nearby Majorana zero modes could be observed. Unfortunately the fabrication of the devices did not turn out successful due to system and self-inflicted fabrication failures. However, devices presented in this thesis are still highly relevant in MF research and it is therefore worth making an effort into achieving these devices. Fabrication is discussed and a proposals of how to proceed is made.
