Spin Texture of Sub-Gap Andreev levels in Semiconductor Quantum Dots Proximity-coupled to Superconductors

The combination of superconductors and low-dimensional semiconductors embodies a rich, yet largely unexplored physics. In this hybrid system, macroscopic properties enforced by superconductivity can be controlled through electrically tunable microscopic degrees of freedom, inherent to a relatively small number of confined electrons.
