The Josephson effect as a tool for creating topological superconductivity

In this talk I will describe how the Josephson effect may be employed to realize one dimensional topological superconductivity. I will describe the basic idea, the experimental observations, the relation to topological superconductivity based on quantum wires, a surprising effect of disorder, and a scheme for braiding Majorana zero modes in Josephson junctions.
