When proximity coupled to s-wave superconductors, quantum wires can
support effective p-wave superconductivity under appropriate
circumstances.  The p-wave state has  Majorana states at the wire ends
which can store quantum information.  I will discuss some properties of
Majorana states formed in oxide and semiconductor quantum wires,
including superconducting state phase diagrams as a function of
spin-orbit coupling strength, Fermi energy, and external magnetic field
strength, and Majorana exchange properties.
