Abstract

A concrete and experimentally feasible example for testing the putative Majorana zero-energy state bound in a vortex is theoretically proposed for a parallel plate geometry of superfluid He3-A phase. We examine the experimental setup in connection with ongoing rotating cryostat experiments. The theoretical analysis is based on the well-established Ginzburg-Landau functional, supplemented by microscopic calculations of the Bogoliubov-de Gennes equation, both of which allow the precise location of the parameter regions of the Majorana state to be found in realistic situations.
