Abstract (Summary)

Recently, interest in superconductor-semiconductor interfaces was renewed by the search for non-Abelian states. One of the possible platform is proximity induce superconductivity into an 1D semiconductor system with strong spin orbit (SO) interaction, such system is predicted to support Majorana excitation. Another candidate is superconductivity coupled to the edge of fractional quantum Hall state, in such system, higher order of non-Abelian statistics is predicted. With such non-Abelian states, topological quantum computing can be realized. In this thesis, I will discuss the approach made by us to investigate such system.
