Title: Teleportation-based quantum information processing with Majorana zero modes

In this work, we present a measurement-based scheme for performing braiding operations on Majorana zero modes in mesoscopic superconductor islands and for detecting their non-Abelian statistics without moving or hybridizing them. In our scheme for “braiding without braiding”, the topological qubit encoded in any pair of well-separated Majorana zero modes is read out from the transmission phase shift in electron teleportation through the island in the Coulomb-blockade regime. Finally, we propose experimental setups to measure the teleportation phase shift via conductance in an electron interferometer or persistent current in a closed loop.
