    Default Clear evidence for Majorana fermion



    Still only as a quasiparticle but unambiguous. Still decade away from knowing whether neutrinos are Dirac (like other fermions) or Majorana (and are their own antiparticle).

    Majorana fermion - Fritz, no offence, but my first thought that sounded like something you'd order at an Italian restaurant.

    I'm sure that Ettore Majorana dined at many fine Italian restaurants. He had an interesting life that ended under mysterious circumstances.
