Mirror Majorana zero modes in spinful superconductors/superfluids
-Non-Abelian braiding of integer quantum vortices-

Masatoshi Sato, Ai Yamakage, Takeshi Mizushima
It has been widely believed that half quantum vortices are indispensable to realize topological stable Majorana zero modes and non-Abelian anyons in spinful superconductors/superfluids. Contrary to this wisdom, we here demonstrate that integer quantum vortices in spinful superconductors can host topologically stable Majorana zero modes because of the mirror symmetry. The symmetry protected Majorana fermions may exhibit non-Abelian anyon braiding.
